Episode Narrative Surface low pressure developed rapidly ahead of a strong short wave trough and moved south of Wisconsin from west central Illinois to just south of Chicago. A shield of precipitation spread over southern Wisconsin the night of March 8th with forcing from warm air advection ahead of the low, and continued through the morning of the 9th as the low crossed northern Illinois. The thermal structure associated with the storm was such that the rain/snow line bisected the Milwaukee/Sullivan County Warning Area. Locations along and northwest of a Fond Du Lac to Madison line saw snowfall accumulations of 3 to 5 inches, with isolated spots seeing more than 5 inches. To the east of this line, 2 to 4 inches of snow was common. The tier of counties right along the Illinois border only received 1 to 2 inches of snow, as most of the precipitation fell as rain.
Event Narrative A mix of rain and snow began around midnight on March 9th gradually changed over to all snow overnight. Snowfall totaled between 3 and 4 inches across the county.
