Episode Narrative A clipper-type low pressure system passing to the southwest and south of Wisconsin resulted in widespread snow across southern Wisconsin. A second low that had moved northeastward from Texas merged with the clipper system over western Ohio and deepened. This resulted in increasing northeast winds...and with a favorable fetch down Lake Michigan...produced lake enhanced snow that boosted snow totals over eastern Wisconsin.

South Central Wisconsin received widespread 4 to 7 inches of snow...with 8 to 14 inches in southeast Wisconsin. The heaviest snow of 10 to 14 inches fell along and east of a line from northwest Sheboygan County near Elkhart Lake...through Hartford in Washington County...the city of Waukesha in Waukesha County...Union Grove in western Racine County to Silver Lake in western Kenosha County. The highest snow total from the storm was 15.0 inches from an observer 1 mile northwest of Belgium in Ozaukee County...with 13.7 inches from an observer 4 miles southwest of Muskego in Waukesha County...13.4 inches in West Allis in Milwaukee County...13.3 inches reported by an observer 6 miles northwest of the city of Kenosha...and 13.1 inches at Hingham in Sheboygan County.

Over 250 traffic crashes, spin-outs and collisions were reported. A tanker truck that rolled over in the westbound lanes of Interstate 39/90 near Edgerton in Rock County blocked the interstate with traffic detoured onto U.S. Highway 14.

One fatality related to the storm occurred in Milwaukee County, where a 73-year old man with a history of heart problems died shortly after shoveling snow.
