Record Setting Snowfall in Wisconsin

Wisconsin, USA
April 11, 2007
An April storm delivered enough punch to SET SNOWFALL RECORDS FOR THE DATE in Milwaukee and Madison. Milwaukee accumulated 5.6 inches of snow through 3 p.m., enough to top the previous mark for April 11, set in 1997. Madison had 4.7 inches by the same time, again enough to best the record set in '97. A snowstorm that spanned April 8 and 9, in 1973, dumped 13 inches in Madison and a foot in Milwaukee, with wind gusts above 50 mph.
