Episode Narrative A powerful storm system moved from the southern plains through eastern Wisconsin, bringing copious amounts of precipitation to northwest Wisconsin from December 30th through the morning of January 1st. Deep tropical moisture out ahead of the storm brought heavy rains to the area on December 30th and 31st. Many areas saw over 1 inch of rain. Cold air wrapped around the system and changed the rain over to snow during the evening hours of New Year's Eve. The snow finally ended during the early morning hours of New Year's Day, with the heaviest amounts of 6 to 12 inches being reported across Ashland and Iron counties.

The heaviest snow fell in northern Iron County, where Odanah reported 10 inches. Other totals include Upson at 10 inches; Gile with 8 inches; Hurley at 7 inches; and Gurney at 6 inches.
