Preliminary snowfall totals reported


Preliminary snowfall totals are being reported across Wisconsin after the first large winter storm of the season pushes away from the region.

The most significant snow fell in the regions of the state where it was expected. Eastern, southern and southeast Wisconsin picked up much more accumulation than central Wisconsin, despite several inches falling across a large portion of the state.

According to the National Weather Service, in Waukesha County 8.5" fell at Menomonee Falls and 7.5" at Waukesha. 6.7" was reported near Madison in Dane County, with 7" recorded at Manitowoc in eastern Wisconsin.

Additional totals place 5.1" at Ashwaubenon in Brown County, 7" near New Rome in Adams County, 5" at Mauston in Juneau County.

Newsline 9's weather watchers reported preliminary totals of 5.5" at Almond in Portage County, 4.3" at Arkdale in Adams County, 2" at Antigo in Langlade County, 3" at City Point, 1.5" at Marshfield and 2.5" at Nekoosa in Wood County, 4" at Big Flats in Adams County, 2.75" at Kronenwetter with 2" at Rib Mountain in Marathon County and 4.5" at Scandinavia in Waupaca County.

In Portage County, 2.1" was observed at Stevens Point with 2.25" at Polonia and Whiting.

The snowfall totals reported are considered preliminary, as light snow continues to fall across much of the state through Sunday evening.

The snow Wisconsin picked up on Sunday is part of a large system tracking toward the northeastern United States. The system sparked severe weather on Saturday, including several tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings in the lower Great Lakes and southeastern United States.

Bouts of heavy rain were noted Saturday afternoon in Ohio and Indiana, prompting the National Weather Service to issue flash flood warnings across most of southwestern Ohio through Sunday morning.

As the system tracks into New England, it is expected to provide widespread spells of freezing rain.

As of Sunday afternoon, large portions of upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine will be under ice storm warnings, freezing rain advisories and winter storm warnings.
