No matter how hard we try, we just can't shake "Ol' Man Winter."
Another winter-like storm made a mad dash toward the Northland on Thursday, April 3. It didn't really pick up in intensity until after 4pm. Snow and strong winds made for an interesting evening commute with limited visibility and snow covered roads. Snow became heavy around 7pm from Moose Lake, to the Twin Ports into portions of Northwest Wisconsin and continued overnight.
The heaviest snow fell in Northern Wisconsin.
