Episode Narrative A typical light to moderate snow event affected parts of south-central and southeast Wisconsin and deposited 3 to almost 5 inches of snow. The greatest accumulations occurred from the Monroe/Janesville area northeast through Waukesha to Sheboygan and Port Washington. Specific snow measurements include 4.2 inches at Brodhead (Green Co.), 4 inches in Jefferson (Jefferson Co.) and at Beloit College (Rock Co.), 4.8 inches near Ocnonomowoc (Waukesha Co.), 3.5 inches in West Bend (Washington Co.), and 3.1 inches in Sheboygan (Sheboygan Co.). Dozens of vehicle accidents were reported by the media. Snow amounts tapered off to 2 to 3 inches in the counties of Fond du Lac, Dodge, Dane, Lafayette, Racine, and Kenosha. Synoptically, a surface trough moved across southern Wisconsin in conjunction with a weather disturbance in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Gusty northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph behind the surface trough generated some minor blowing and drifting of the new snow.
