Heavy Snow Hits Northeast Wisconsin

Heavy snow fell over much of Wisconsin on January 30 as an area of low pressure developed along an Arctic cold front and moved across the western Great Lakes. The storm was a quick-hitter, with much of the 4 to 9 inches of snow falling in a 12-hour period. Gusty northwest winds produced some blowing and drifting of the snow.

In Green Bay, 8.3" fell during the storm, the heaviest snowfall since December 20. Wausau picked up 5.7" and Rhinelander had 4.7" of new snow.
