WAUSAU (AP) — This week's snowstorm in Wisconsin is a record breaker for some communities.

The snow total reached 15.7 inches in Wausau on Tuesday, shattering the one-day snowfall record for the city previously set at 13 inches in 1924 and 1908.

Some impressive snow totals were seen around the state Tuesday, including 14.2 at Plover and 13.9 at Rhinelander. The National Weather Service says 8.3 inches of snow fell at the Dane County Regional Airport, smashing the old mark for the day of 4.9 inches set on Feb. 12, 1923.

In Milwaukee, the National Weather Service recorded 7.9 inches, breaking a record for the day set at 7.5 inches in 2008.
