Episode Narrative Yet another winter storm affected South-central and Southeast Wisconsin with a combination of snow accumulations of 3 to almost 9 inches, and gusty northeast to northwest winds to 26 knots (30 mph). Blowing snow resulted in snow drifts to 1 to 2 feet in depth in open exposed areas, since the snow didn't have a lot of moisture content. Occasionally, visibilities were reduced to 1/4 to 1/2 mile in open areas. The greatest accumulations were generally north of a Madison to Milwaukee line. Specific snow accumulations include: 8.8 inches in West Bend and Allenton, both in Washington County, 8.7 inches in Waukesha (Waukesha Co.), 8.5 inches in Belgium (Ozaukee Co.), 7.8 inches in Elkhart Lake (Sheboygan Co.), 7.8 inches in West Allis (Milwaukee Co.), 7.4 inches at a location 5 SW Downtown Madison (Dane Co.), 7.4 inches in Lake Mills (Jefferson Co.), an estimated 7 to 8 inches in East-central Dodge County and far southeast Fond du Lac County, 7 inches in Blanchardville (Lafayette Co.), and generally 5 to 6.5 inches over the remainder of the counties listed in this Winter Storm event. However, snow amounts were only 3 to 5 inches in Kenosha County. Media reports indicated that dozens of vehicle accidents and slide-offs occurred. Synoptically, an Alberta-clipper low pressure dropped from the Northern Plains to Northern Missouri where it intensified and then moved through Northern Illinois to Lower Michigan.
