The snowiest day of this winter in La Crosse didn’t happen until about a month into spring.
Sunday’s snow total of 7 inches in La Crosse was the highest for one day since the start of the winter, beating the 6.5 inches that fell on February 22nd.
The city’s official total at the airport was 9.5 inches, compared to 20 inches in Mindoro and near Black River Falls, 17 inches at West Salem, and 16 inches in Sparta.
The heaviest snowfall was located along the border between Jackson and Trempealeau Counties, with parts of six Wisconsin counties receiving a foot or more of snow. The storm followed record-setting warmth last week, with highs of 80 degrees or more in La Crosse from Tuesday to Thursday.
Tree damage and downed power lines were reported in several parts of the region.
