Episode Narrative This was the last in a long series of storms and snowfalls to affect south-central and southeast Wisconsin during December, 2008. Warm air advection in the mid-levels of the atmosphere followed by a strong cold front, resulted in a mixed bag of precipitation types. The precipitation started off as freezing rain that left a glazing of ice up to 1/8 inch thick. After the cold air arrived, snowfalls of 1 to around 3 inches occurred, along with blowing and drifting of the snow. Northwest winds gusted up to 26 to 35 knots. The media noted that dozens of vehicle accidents occurred. Specific snow measurements include 3.2 inches at Mt. Horeb and 1.9 inchees at Madison (Dane Co.); 3.1 inches near Oxford (Marquette Co.); 3 inches in Portage (Columbia Co.) and Berlin (Green Lake Co.); and 1.5 inches in Waukesha (Waukesha Co.). Snow amounts tapered off toward the southeast. Measured wind gust reports of 40 to 43 knots (46 to 50 mph) came out of the Kenosha (Kenosha Co.) area.
