Major snowfall misses La Crosse again



It looks like La Crosse finished January with about 9 inches of snow for the entire month. 

The storm which passed through on Saturday night and Sunday brought only 2.3 inches to La Crosse, compared to a foot or more in far southern parts of Wisconsin. 

The city had 11.9 inches of snow in both January and February last year. 

In the past month, La Crosse had no new measurable snow for the first 13 days of January, and the average temperature for the month was about 6 degrees above normal.  

La Crosse’s 2 inches for the weekend compares to 5 inches in some northeastern Iowa towns, including Harpers Ferry and Elkader. 

Prairie du Chien had 4 inches from the storm, with 3 inches in Richland Center and Tomah. 

Very little snow fell west of Rochester.  Some extreme southern parts of Wisconsin got more than 15 inches.
