UPDATE: Early snow totals begin rolling in


Preliminary snow totals from Wednesday's winter storm are starting to slowly trickle in. 

As of 4:26 p.m., the National Weather Service has received reports from trained weather spotters of 9" having fallen Wednesday north of Iola, 8.3" in Tigerton, 8.2" in Scandinavia, 7.8" in Plover, 7.3" in Green Bay, 8" in Stevens Point, 6" in Wautoma, 5" in Necedah and Merrill, 4" in Appleton, 4" in Clintonville and 3.2" in Rhinelander.

The 7.3" in Green Bay set a new record snowfall amount for January 30th, breaking the old record of 7.2" recorded in 1947. 

In Wausau, a measurement of 5" was recorded outside our Newsline 9 studios on Grand Avenue. 

With the heaviest snow now over, attention will be turned to the northwest.  That is because colder air will filter into the state through Thursday unleashing colder temps and the possibility of lake effect snow.  

A lake effect snow advisory will be active for Iron County until 6 a.m. Friday. 

We will continue to update this article as new snowfall reports from the National Weather Service and Storm Track 9's trained weather watchers are reported this evening.
