Episode Narrative The first widespread snow event of the 2007-08 winter season affected south-central and southeast Wisconsin on November 21st. Snow accumulations were in the 1 to 3 inch range. Media reports indicated that dozens vehicle accidents occurred. Temperatures were in the upper 20s to lower 30s and the snowflakes were large and moist. Maximum accumulations included 3 inches in southern Sheboygan County, northeastern Washington County, and from north of Elkhorn in Walworth County to central Waukesha County. Otherwise the remainder of south-central and southeast Wisconsin had 1 to 2.5 inches. Initially, the precipitation started off as rain, but changed over to snow between 1600CST and 1700CST west of Madison and between 1800CST and 1900CST in the Sheboygan to Kenosha area. Synoptically, a strong, upper-level short wave trough moving from Colorado to Illinois was responsible for the snow. Additionally, southern Wisconsin was under the right-rear quadrant of a 140 knot jet streak over the Great Lakes region. This is a favored region of lift/upward vertical motion.
