Episode Narrative A winter storm came out of the southwest United States and brought snow, sleet and freezing rain to western Wisconsin from February 20th into the 21st. The freezing rain mainly fell across southwest Wisconsin and created ice accumulations up to a quarter of an inch in Crawford County.

Snow accumulations over the 2 days ranged from around an inch for southwest Wisconsin up to a foot across the central and north central part of the state.
