*Update 2: The waiting game is over. On the evening of November 26th, Tony measured over 1 inch of snow at WAOW-TV and thus the First Snowfall Contest has come to an end. All that is left is the drawing for the top 5 prizes which will be held on Wake-Up Wisconsin on Tuesday December 3rd.

*Update: Only 6 tenths of an inch of snow fell in Wausau on Wednesday November 13th, so the contest rolls on. The next chance of some accumulating snow will be Sunday November 17th.

As you can see from the winning dates in past years, the first inch of snow has fallen as early as October and as late as after Christmas.

Now that you have your prediction in, you can check back here throughout the season to see when we will be getting our rulers out and measuring that first inch of snow.
