LA CROSSE, Wis. - Every snowfall we get is welcome news for farmers in our area.
After the drought we experienced last year, the area needs as much moisture as possible.
Over the past 11 days, we've received more than ten inches of snow or more than an inch of liquid precipitation.
The National Weather Service says any amount of moisture we get helps. "Usually in the Springtime, the surface, the top six inches of soil, has plenty of moisture to get the seeds germinated and the plants growing and such, it's that moisture that's down below six inches that's well into the subsoil that really sustains the crops through the summer months so that's where we're going to need additional precipitation," said Mike Welvaert from the National Weather Service office in La Crosse.
Welvaert also says there is a low chance of flooding this Spring.
