Episode Narrative A fast moving winter storm passed through northeast Wisconsin during the evening rush hour. The storm dumped a swath of 4 to 6 inches of heavy, wet snow across much of northeast Wisconsin. A few locations received 8 to 10 inches of snow from the storm.
Most of the snow fell over a period of 6 to 8 hours. The storm was accompanied by bursts of intense snowfall with occasional lightning and thunder that was reported from Oshkosh and Appleton to Green Bay. During the height of the storm, snow was falling at the rate of more than 2 inches per hour, reducing visibilities to a few hundred feet at times. In addition to the heavy snowfall, strong northeast wind gusts in excess of 40 mph created considerable blowing and drifting snow, with near white-out conditions at times.
Some of the highest snowfall totals included 10.5 inches at Peshtigo (Marinette Co.), 10.0 inches at Florence (Florence Co.), 8.5 inches at North Bay (Door Co.), 7.1 inches at Ephraim (Door Co.), 7.0 inches near Rosholt (Marathon Co.), 6.6 inches near Cecil (Shawano Co.) and 6.5 inches at Baileys Harbor (Door Co.) and Allouez (Brown Co.).
The highest recorded wind gusts were 45 mph at Green Bay (Brown Co.), 44 mph at Algoma City Marina (Kewaunee Co.), 43 mph at Oshkosh (Winnebago Co.) and 40 mph at Sturgeon Bay (Door Co.).
