Episode Narrative An arctic cold front swept across southwest and central Wisconsin during the day on January 29. This system was accompanied by snow, with highest accumulations of 2 to 5 inches along and north of a line from Alma (Buffalo County) to Neillsville (Clark County). Strong northwest winds gusting to around 40 mph caused considerable blowing snow. Temperatures plummeted across the entire area, with numerous locations experiencing over a 50 degree temperature drop for the calendar day. For example, at La Crosse (La Crosse County), the temperature plunged from 43F at 2 a.m. on the 29th to -10F by midnight on January 30. This 53 degree drop tied a record for the all-time largest temperature change in a calendar day, which was previously established on February 17, 1874.
