Oshkosh First 1" Snowfalls
Since 1980, one may be hard pressed to remember when snow accumulated in Oshkosh more than an inch during late October into November. Off the top of my head, I could not remember what had happened in my own backyard. So I dug into it. Since 1980 the snow that fell at OSNW3 the days of Nov 9-10, 2011 is tied for the 4th earliest of all-time. It just so happens that back in 2006 two inches of snow fell in similar fashion on Nov 10-11.
