Eau Claire, WI (WQOW) - Eau Claire recently closed the book on its coldest winter (meteorological) since the early 1890s, tying with the winter of 1904. More records have been observed lately too.
***Also, as of March 3rd, 57 days this season have recorded a low temperature below zero, 58 days if one includes "zero". The records are 60 days sub-zero and 63 days at/below zero, both records from 1977-1978.
Aside from the below zero readings, another record Eau Claire may contend with is the total snowfall from July 1 to June 30th. So far, Eau Claire has received about 61 inches of snow; the record is 89.5 inches set in the 1996-1997 season. Stormtracker 18 Weather meteorologists say a couple of bigger March snowstorms and a few, smaller snow events could put that record in jeopardy.
