Original post:
The National Weather Service reports that today's snowfall at Green Bay, Wisconsin has set a record for so late in the season:

AS OF 9 PM THIS EVENING...8.7 INCHES OF SNOW HAD FALLEN IN GREEN BAY. THE GREATEST DAILY SNOWFALL EVER SO LATE IN THE SEASON.

TODAY`S SNOWFALL BRINGS THE SEASONAL TOTAL TO 91.2 INCHES... THE THIRD GREATEST SEASONAL TOTAL EVER IN GREEN BAY...AND THE MOST SINCE THE WINTER OF 1889-1890. 

This exceeds by half an inch the 8.2" which fell 4 days later in the month on April 23, 1910. Measurable snow has fallen as late as May 28, when 3" fell in 1947 at Green Bay.

Daily records were also set or tied at Milwaukee and Madison:

RECORD SNOWFALL OF A TRACE AT MILWAUKEE WI ON APRIL 19. TIES OLD RECORD OF A TRACE SET IN 1990.

RECORD PRECIPITATION OF 1.04 INCHES IN MADISON ON
APRIL 19. PREVIOUS RECORD WAS 0.93 INCHES IN 1993.

RECORD SNOWFALL OF 1.3 INCHES IN MADISON ON APRIL 19.  PREVIOUS RECORD OF 0.3 INCHES WAS SET IN 1953.
