Episode Narrative Surface low pressure, tracking from northern Missouri across extreme northeast Illinois to northern Lower Michigan, was accompanied by a strong upper-level disturbance moving across the western Great Lakes region. These features combined with a favorable thermal profile to produce 3 to 6 inches of heavy, wet snow across northwest portions of South Central Wisconsin during the morning and early afternoon hours of November 9th. Power lines and tree limbs snapped under the weight of the heavy snow that had collected on them. Snowfall totals for the event included La Valle with 7.2 inches; Reedsburg with 6.4 inches; Baraboo with 6 inches; and Mineral Point with 5.5 inches of snow. The 7-inch amount was isolated and therefore prevented this event from being entered as a winter storm. In addition to the snow, the tight pressure gradient around the low produced sustained northeast to north winds of 15 to 25 mph, with gusts of 35 to 45 mph, reducing visibilities and adding to travel difficulties.
