Episode Narrative A long-duration winter weather event affected parts of south-central, east-central, and southeast Wisconsin on December 22-23rd. Some light freezing rain preceded snow and blowing snow. The light freezing rain fell west of a line from Elkhart Lake to Cambellsport to Watertown to Milton to Brodhead, with up to 1/8 ice accumulations west of Interstate 39/90. This event was related to a winter storm that occurred at the same time in the area west of Madison. Specific snow accumulations include 7 in Wisconsin Dells, 6.5 in Mt. Horeb, an estimated 6 inches in far northwestern Green Lake County, 5 inches in northwestern Green County, and 1 to 3 over the remainder of the area in this winter weather event. The minor to moderate blowing and drifting snow occurred due to gusty west-southwest winds to 30 to 45 knots (35 to 52 mph). The Janesville Airport had a measured gust of 45 knots (52 mph), and the Sheboygan Aiport came in with a gust of 41 knots (47 mph). Synoptically, low pressure deepened rapidly as it moved northeast through southeast Wisconsin on its way to the Upper Penesula of Michigan.
