By the end of this week, La Crosse and the surrounding area are likely to be under a new blanket of snow, for the first time in almost a month. Forecasters from the weather service say snow is likely late Tuesday, and then again less than 24 hours later.
La Crosse is expected to get at least 3 inches of snow during the first storm. The city has gotten no measurable snow in three weeks, and highs have been in the 40’s for most days since February 6th.
The National Weather Service predicts 3 to 5 inches of snow for La Crosse between noon on Tuesday and early Wednesday morning. Snow totals may be higher in areas north of La Crosse.
That snow could be followed by a second storm Wednesday night and Thursday.
The city’s last measurable snow occurred during the last week of January. Snow cover in La Crosse has been gone for a week or more.
