Episode Narrative Strong northwest winds behind an arctic cold generated widespread blowing snow that lowered visibilities to occasionally below 1/4 mile in open areas. The near-blizzard conditions made for hazardous driving conditions across south-central and southeast Wisconsin. Some new light snow accompanied the strong winds, generally in the 1/2 to 1 inch range. Hundreds of vehicle runoffs and accidents were reported as roads became icy and slippery, based on media reports. Snow drifts grew to a height of 4 feet on some roads in Sheboygan County according to spotter reports. Maximum wind gusts were generally 30 to 35 knots (35 to 40 mph), however, a gust of 42 knots (49 mph) was measured at the Sheboygan airport (KSBM). The start time of the strong winds was generally about 2000 CST northwest of a line from Brodhead to Whitewater to Oconomowoc to Port Washington. Southeast of this line the start time was about 2300 CST. There were isolated reports of some old trees or large tree branches knocked down by the wind. However, there were no damage reports.
