Episode Narrative The first winter storm of the season dumped heavy, wet snow across central and northeast Wisconsin as a low pressure system moved from Oklahoma to central Lake Michigan. A band of 6 to 9 inches of snow fell from the Waupaca area (Waupaca Co.) to the city of Florence (Florence Co.). There were brief bursts of heavy snow at Green Bay (Brown Co.), where thunder accompanied the snow around 2 pm CST.
Power outages occurred in Oneida, Marathon, Langlade, Waupaca and Shawano counties as the wet snow caused tree limbs to break. At the height of the storm, more than 15,000 customers were without power. Hundreds of vehicle accidents occurred on the slippery roads across the area.
Some of the highest snowfall totals included 9.2 inches at Long Lake (Forest Co.), 9.0 inches at Rhinelander (Oneida Co.), 8.3 inches at Laona (Forest Co.), 7.0 inches at Iola (Waupaca Co.) and 6.2 inches at Wild Rose (Waushara Co.).
Heavy rain preceded the snow in east central Wisconsin. In Green Bay, 2.20 inches of precipitation fell on the 8th and 9th, making it the third wettest November storm in over 100 years of record-keeping.
