Fast Moving Storm Hits East-Central Wisconsin

A fast moving storm system raced across the Great Lakes region Friday.  The storm produced snow across about the southeast half of Wisconsin.  The heaviest snows fell in a band from just west of Milwaukee to the lakeshore areas in east-central Wisconsin.  In general, 4 to 6 inches of snow fell across the Fox Valley, while 5 to 8 inches fell across lakeshore counties.  The highest reported snowfall in our area was 8.5 inches at Francis Creek in Manitowoc county.

This measurement was the routine 24hr observation which encompassed two official observations. The snowboard I made the 927pm measurement was used for this observation as well.  I measured 2.4", providing 0.2" more snow overnight. A radarloop of the entire storm is below. An area of light snow associated with the trough extending from the departing low is providing a fluffy coating this morning.

Snow continued moderately through the dinner hour and has since tapered off to very light snow or flurries. Winds have picked up a bit. Took a drive to get some take out from Bangkok Thai and the roads were snow covered and slippery.

Snow started to fall around noon. It picked up intensity around 2pm and has continued heavy to moderate up to this observation. Light winds with an occasional light gust. The snow is very wet and packy. Great for building snow structures.
