Wisconsin Wakes to Spring Snowfall

Winter weather kept its grip on northern Wisconsin on Monday, May 1, as “strong and gusty” winds brought snow and power outage potential over the region, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

Video shows snow falling on the NWS’s Green Bay regional office in Ashwaubenon early Monday morning. Forecasts suggested the northernmost parts of the state could see more than 4 inches of snow accumulation.

According to the NWS, since 1887, Green Bay has recorded measurable snow on 22 days during the month of May.

“To put it into perspective, that is 22 days out of 4,217 days or 0.4 percent,” the weather service wrote on Twitter.“Measurable snow has been recorded in Green Bay as late as May 28th (1947) when 3 inches fell on the city.” Credit: NWS Green Bay via Storyful
