THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Rain, Snow, Thunder, Lightning, Hits Area
Unusual weather hit Marinette and Oconto Counties on Tuesday night, Apr. 9, and early Wednesday morning, April 10.
It contained lightning, thunder, snow, sleet and hail, unusual for April with the weather in the 30s. Plows did not get out until about 7 a.m. and highways and roads were like a washboard and slippery as motorists traveled about 25 miles an hour compared to the usual 65 mph. The county had taken the plow units off their trucks.
Most school opened with many opening about two hours late.
The storm began to break up about 8 a.m. but the sleet and snow are scheduled to appear again late in the afternoon and evening. There could be an estimated one to two inches.
On Thursday, Apr. 11, more snow and wintery mix is forecasted with up to one to three inches of snow and temperature about 35 degrees.
The Friday, Apr. 12 forecast is cloudy with possible snow showers and 35 degree weather. On Saturday, Apr. 13 cold and less windy are expected and Sunday, Apr. 14 weather shows clouds and finally about 40 degree weather.
