Episode Narrative A surge of moisture and isentropic lift ahead of a negatively-tilted short wave trough spread freezing drizzle and areas of freezing fog across all of South Central and Southeast Wisconsin during the morning hours of January 22nd. The freezing precipitation put down a glaze between 1/8 inch to just under 1/4 inch thick on surfaces across southern Wisconsin. Warm air at the surface moved into most of Southeast and South Central Wisconsin during the evening hours...changing the freezing drizzle over to drizzle. Locations in the counties of Iowa...Sauk...Columbia..and Marquette continued to get freezing drizzle and freezing fog during the overnight...with light snow falling on top of the glazed surfaces as the precipitation came to the end during the early morning hours of the 23rd. The icy surfaces created hazardous travel conditions that produced numerous spin-outs and accidents, including an accident on westbound I-94 at County Highway F in Waukesha County that involved a semi-trailer truck and a county snowplow.
