Episode Narrative Yet another low pressure system moving from the Southern Plains to Lower Michigan dumped light to moderate snow amounts across south-central and southeast Wisconsin. Snow accumulations were generally 3 to 4 inches, but amounts tapered off to 2 inches near Lake Michigan from Milwaukee south to Kenosha. Northwest winds on the backside of the low pressure gusted on occasions to 30 knots (35 mph), resulting in blowing and drifting of the snow in open and exposed areas. Visibilities were reduced to around 1/2 mile at times. Snow and ice accumulations caused a 100-foot by 200-foot section of a roof to collapse on a building in Kohler (Sheboygan Co.), but there were no injuries. Dozens of vehicle accidents were reported by the media. A 2-vehicle accident near Cottage Grove (Dane Co.) claimed the life of an 18-year-old man. In the Town of Clyman (Dodge Co.), a 2-vehicle accident resulted in the deaths of a mother and her young boy, and 1 injury. Near Wisconsin Dells (Columbia Co.) a 60-year old women died in a roll-over, with 3 other people injured. A 4-vehicle accident near Gratiot (Lafayette Co.) resulted in 4 injuries. All of the fatalities and injuries in these vehicle incidents were indirectly-related to slippery road conditions.
