Midwest Snowstorm Final Accumulations November 8-10

The totals are in from the November 8-10 snowstorm, the first one of the season for the Upper Midwest and Plains region. Observations indicate the hardest hit region was indeed Northeast Wisconsin, where some areas clocked in over 8 inches of snow. This snow was wet, which is to be expected with an early season snowstorm. Nonetheless, significant amounts of snow were laid down in Wisconsin and Iowa as seen in images above. It appears a band of heavy snow set up across the area outlined in blue as the system moved to the north into Canada. Here's some statistics:

-15,000 customers were without power at the height of the storm.
-The highest official observation was 9.2 inches in Long Lake.
