Snowflakes fall on the 31st anniversary of the May 10, 1990 snowstorm

Remember May 10, 1990? If you were around here back then you can't forget it. 3.2" of snow fell making it tied for the biggest May snowfall on record. The trees had already leafed out so the storm caused major tree damage and power outages. Tomorrow, May 11th, is also the latest we've every had a measurable snow which was back in 1966.

Monday morning we didn't see any measurable snow but we certainly had some snow showers mix with rain showers as well as sleet and graupel. Temperatures Monday morning were hanging out in the 30s and low 40s. William Olson sent in this photo from the Waukesha area/.

A few more isolated (mostly rain) showers are possible through Monday afternoon and early evening before a clear sky arrives tonight and sunshine for Tuesday. With the clear Monday night sky the temperatures will drop with lows in the low to middle 30s Tuesday morning leading to a likelihood of frost and a chance for a freeze.
