Record-breaking snowfall: Over 130 inches since last January

While the Northwoods is no stranger to inclement winter weather, heavy snowfalls from recent storms have brought a record-breaking amount of the white stuff to the area.

According to data collected by staff meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Green Bay, the snowfall reports from Rhinelander indicate a total of 42.8 inches of snow has fallen since July, compared to the 25.7 inches from the previous year.

With the recent snowstorm that blew through the Lakeland area Dec. 30 - dropping approximately eight inches on Minocqua - the 2019 year-to-date snowfall total is just over 133 inches, breaking the reported 2014 snowfall total of 131.5 inches.

"For Rhinelander, at least, as of this date last year, there were 34 inches of snow, so we're about 10 inches ahead of last year," National Weather Service senior forecaster Richard Mamrosh said. "And about 12 inches above what the normal is, up to this stage."

According to Mamrosh, the weather has been snowier and wetter than usual for this time of year, with temperatures generally around the normal range.

"It's been snowier than most of the last 10 years, so if that trend were to continue, you might expect it to be snowier than normal for the rest of the winter," Mamrosh said. "There's no guarantee for that."
