Kenosha County, WI - When it comes to Wisconsin weather we’re all used to the snow, and cold, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t sick of it.

"Winter is over, I thought,” Dale Shamberg said.

Dale Shamberg said he was bracing himself for another April snow shower.

“O, it’s terrible. It’s nasty. I thought summer was here,” Shamberg said.

But things were looking up in the afternoon. The winter storm warning became a winter weather advisory, a downgrade from what was forecasted earlier in the week.

“It’s chilly and it tries to snow a little, but I don’t know if it’s going to keep on or now,” Shamberg said.

But an April snow isn’t the worst southeast Wisconsin has seen. On May, 10th 1990 Milwaukee was pelted with snow leaving at least three inches on the ground, something David Mitchell said he’d hate to see right now.

“It’s almost May. We don’t need this stuff. Let’s have some warm nice weather and go fishing. It opens next week, we gotta get out there on the boats," Mitchell said.
