Snowstorm Dec 30

A Winter Storm Warning was in effect this morning (Dec 30). We had a quick 0.5" accumulate between 6-7am, but the band shifted northward and the snow completely stopped. Find out what went down in NW Wisconsin as the system moved east with Dirk and Derek as they actually got some good snowfall.

.UPDATE...AN UPDATED SET OF ZONES WILL BE OUT ASAP WITH THE SOUTHEAST PART OF THE FORECAST AREA DOWNGRADED FROM WARNING TO ADVISORY BASED ON EXPECTED SNOWFALL TOTALS.


Oshkosh was included in the downgrade. However, the snow picked up again and since it started out as a Warning, might as well keep updating what once was, eh?!
