Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
939 AM CDT Sun Apr 15 2018


A very powerful low pressure system brought intense winter weather
to much of the state. Northern Wisconsin got hit the hardest, with
up to a foot of snow and strong winds combining to create blizzard
conditions in some areas. Less snow fell in southern Wisconsin,
but slightly warmer temperatures did result in up to 2 inches of
sleet in some locations and up to 1/4" of ice.


The cyclone will continue to impact the Badgerland for the next 24
hours. Up to an additional 18" of snow are expected across far
northern Wisconsin, tapering to around 6" in central Wisconsin, to
around 1" along the IL state line. Unfortunately more mixed
precipitation is also expected in southern Wisconsin.

By Monday evening, nearly all of the precipitation will have moved
out of the state, but the quiet weather will be short lived. On
Wednesday, another round of wintry precipitation will impact
Wisconsin. The morning will begin with snow in the north and rain
in the south, transitioning to all rain by the afternoon. As the
precipitation tapers off on Wednesday evening, it will gradually
switch back to all snow.
