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 and a portion of Southeast Wisconsin received widespread 4 to 7 inches of snow...with 8 to 14 inches in southeast Wisconsin. Snow totals of 5 to 9 inches fell west of a line from western Fond Du Lac County near Ripon...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 advisory area was 7.3 inches from an observer 1 mile south of Mt. Horeb in Dane County...with 7 inches reported from observers in Sauk...Lafayette...Jefferson and Rock Counties...and 6.6 inches in East Troy in Walworth 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.
