Episode Narrative Surface low pressure tracked from eastern Iowa to just south of Chicago producing a winter storm with a mixed-bag of precipitation types and wind gusts of 22 to 33 knots (25 to 34 mph) that affected South Central and Southeast Wisconsin from February 20th into early February 21st. Visibilities were reduced to around 1/2 mile. Only those counties bordering Illinois escaped the storm. The counties of Sauk and Columbia picked up 1/2 to 1 inch of sleet followed by several inches of snow. Maximum snow and sleet accumulations were 3 to around 7 inches, with the lower amounts in the southern portions of these counties. The greatest totals were 7.3 inches in Portage (Columbia Co.) and 7 inches in La Valle (Sauk Co.). The precipitation north of these counties was mostly snow while south of these counties most of the precipitation was freezing rain and sleet.
