Pretty to look at, but not enough to ski on yet… and on Friday it disappears as temps warm to a high of 44 degrees.
Here are some useful resources that you may wish to bookmark, especially if it ever snows.
- Travel Wisconsin provides an online cross-country skiing snow conditions report that covers the entire state, listing base depth and date of the most recent trail grooming. Sad to say, Door County is still marked as closed.
- Weather Street provides Wisconsin’s 6-Hourly Snowfall Forecast for Next 2 Days, but as of this post we are batting zero… with no snow expected statewide. They also publish a handy Wisconsin Snow Depth Analysis Report (updated hourly).
- Wisconsin State Climatology Office provides an extensive set of Wisconsin Winter Climate Reports that cover: temperature, heating degree days, precipitation, snow, ice, frost depth, severe winter weather, sunrise/sunset and more.
January should be the snowiest month, typically bringing the state an average snowfall of 14″ according to State Climatology records, but this year something is missing.
I took my skis and poles out of the storage loft and got out my boots… ready to go, if we just get some snow.
