From what I have seen, looks about right.  I think Detroit also had their first flakes this morning according to what Niko said and I noticed the radar had some snow returns.


At DTW? Supposed to be at the official OBS site correct?

Yes, I thought DTW is the official site, if not, then go with whatever is official.

It is, but you mentioned Niko and he's no where near DTW. Just wondering if the official site recorded snow for the record?

Duluth got 10.6" inches of snow yesterday! Breaks the daily record of 4.3" snow in 2010.

Earlier in the morning I saw the radar showing some blues so I figure it may be snowing.  I have not checked if it was confirmed at the airport.

Indeed, I saw blue color on radar  (Snowflurries) flying around.

Also the 10.6” of snow is the highest daily snow total ever recorded in October in Duluth.

Nothing here in Milwaukee yet, some cold light drizzle this morning I was hoping would mix some flakes in but no dice.

 

I know this isn't official, but I am a bit west of Milwaukee and yesterday morning, there was snow on top of the cover of my jet ski. We definitely had some flakes out here, no accumulation, obviously, but they were sticking to things that could be cooled off enough overnight. You had to get out there and look hard, but it definitely happened.
