On Jan. 31, the average Lake Superior water level was only 600 feet above mean sea level. That's more than one foot lower than the level in January 2006, and just two to three inches higher than the record low of 599.8 feet measured in 1926. "Much of northwestern Wisconsin has been classified as in the extreme drought category." Many stations in the northwestern corner of Wisconsin recorded annual precipitation totals for 2006 that were a staggering 10 to 15 inches (or more) below 30-year averages.
