As the snow falls and the wind blows, a quick walk to your car can feel like a slap in the face. But dressed properly, winter can be one of the most beautiful seasons in the Northland. The intensity of the colors in a winter sunrise and the sparkle of the sun on new-fallen snow will take your breath away just like the cold temperatures.

Throughout the year, the Eyewitness StormTeam asks viewers to email or share their weather photos with WDIO. The pictures are often used LIVE during our weather forecasts and then shared on one or more of our social media platforms.

We also create a Photo Gallery of viewers photos so you can see the best views of Northern Minnesota, Northwest Wisconsin and the U.P. of Michigan.  We will try and include at least one image from each viewer in our photo gallery. A new gallery will be created for each season.

While winter can seem like it lasts forever, we consider the months of December, January, and February to be winter.

However, true Northlanders know, a big snow storm is possible in November AND March!

Viewers wishing to share their winter pictures may do so by emailing or by sharing a photo on one of our social media accounts.  WDIO/WIRT Facebook, Twitter or .  Don't forget to use #wdiowirt1013 too.
