First snow for parts of Wisconsin

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Parts of far northern Wisconsin got an inch of snow yesterday and last night -- and a few more inches are possible as the week goes on.

Pine County in Minnesota picked up five inches yesterday before the storm rolled into the Badger State, and left an inch at Washburn and Gile. Other parts of the north saw a rain-and-snow mix.

Light rain fell on Packer fans in Green Bay on-and-off during yesterday's win over Cleveland.

The National Weather Service says a pair of low-pressure systems to the north-and-east of Wisconsin could bring a few inches of snow tonight to parts of Vilas County close to Lake Superior. Forecasters say lake-effect snows are possible all week in far northern Wisconsin.

Meanwhile a hard freeze is predicted for tonight in Madison, Milwaukee, and 20 counties in the south. That will mark the end of the growing season there, after it ended during the weekend in northeast Wisconsin.

Statewide highs are projected in the 30's-and-40's all week long, with lows generally in the 20's. Only a handful of places in the north normally see their first snow in October. In Eagle River, the average date is November second when the first tenth-of-an-inch falls. The first inch normally doesn't come down there until November fourth.
