Episode Narrative An Alberta-clipper winter weather event affected south-central and southeast Wisconsin with new snow accumulations and gusty northwest winds that led to some blowing and drifting snow. Snow accumulations ranged from roughly 2 inches in the counties of Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha, on to up 3 to 4.8 inches along and northwest of a line from Madison (Dane Co.) to Port Washington (Ozaukee Co.). Northwest winds on the backside of the low pressure were on the order of 13 to 22 knots (15 to 25 mph) with gusts to 26 knots (30 mph). Specific accumulations included 4.8 inches in Mt. Horeb (Dane Co.), 4.7 inches in Ripon (Fond du Lac Co.), 4.5 inches in Portage (Columbia Co.), 4.3 inches north of Oxford (Marquette Co.), and 4 inches in Random Lake (Sheboygan Co.). Dozens of vehicle accidents were noted by the media. The responsible Alberta-Clipper low pressure dropped southeast out of the Northern Plains through northern Illinois and then to Northern Ohio.
