Rapidly developing low pressure moved across western Ohio and southeast Lower Michigan during the overnight period of October 19th and morning of October 20th. An associated strong pressure gradient produced strong gusty north to northeast winds over Sheboygan and Ozaukee Counties. Wind gusts reached 40 to 53 mph near the Lake Michigan shore. The persistent strong winds downed weak trees and tree limbs which then snapped power-lines, causing scattered power outages.

A powerful low pressure center, passing south of Wisconsin, produced blizzard conditions across much of southern Wisconsin from the evening hours of Tuesday, February 1st into the early morning of Wednesday, February 2nd. Snow associated with the system began in the mid-afternoon hours of February 1st in far southern Wisconsin and became heavy as it pushed northward into the state through the late afternoon and evening. Very strong winds were associated with this storm for an extended period of time. Sustained northeast winds of 30 to 40 mph were common through the event, with peak wind gusts between 45 and 55 mph, with the stronger wind gusts near Lake Michigan. The lakeshore observation site at Sheboygan reported a 55 mph wind gust at 6 pm CST on February 1st. The combination of high winds and heavy snow created widespread sustained visibilities of less than 1/4 mile, with frequent whiteout conditions and near zero visibilities. Twenty-four hour snowfall totals were between 8 and 16 inches, with 16 inches of snow measured by a cooperative observer 1 mile southwest of West Bend (Washington County); 11.5 inches near Beaver Dam in the town of Westfield (Dodge County); 9.5 inches just southwest of the city of Sheboygan; 8.5 inches in Grafton (Ozaukee County); and 8 inches 2 miles southwest of Fond Du Lac. In addition to the snow that fell during the blizzard, several inches of snow fell on Jan 31, with light lake effect snow through the day on Feb 1st. It's possible that some locations did not see a break in snowfall between the evening of January 31st and the morning of February 2nd. Snow drifts of 3 to 10 feet were common, with reports of some drifts reaching 12 to 15 feet in open rural areas. Drifting snow closed county highways and roads with many stranded motorists having to be rescued from vehicles buried in the drifting snow. About 100 National Guardsman were mobilized statewide in response to Gov. Scott Walker's emergency declaration for 29 counties to help rescue motorists and run emergency shelters at armories. Dodge County law enforcement reported 174 vehicles were stuck in snow or had skidded off area roads. A Randolph (Dodge County) man injured his hand in a snow blower incident. At the height of the storm, WE Energies reported 5,200 customers were without power across Southeast Wisconsin.

January 30, 2008

In the wake of a powerful winter storm, strong northwest winds and bitter cold air combined to generate very low wind chill values across parts of south-central and southeast Wisconsin. Air temperatures were in the -4F to -11F range and northwest winds were on the order of 13 to 20 knots (15 to 23 mph) with peak gusts of 22 to 30 knots (25 to 35 mph). Wind chill values dropped to -35F to -39F for 3 hours or more. Synoptically, a strong low pressure moved northeast through Minnesota while a strong cold front swept southeast through Wisconsin on the 29th. Another low pressure developed along the cold front while it was over northern Illinois on the 30th, which led to a tightening pressure gradient and stronger winds over southern Wisconsin.

A thunderstorm pulsed to minimal severe weather limits and toppled some large trees and power lines.

Periods of freezing rain, initially with some convective showers, resulted in an Ice Storm with ice accumulations of 1/4 to 1/2 inch. sleet and thundersnow were also observed. Toward the end of this event, 1 inch snow accumulations were reported. During the event, northeast winds were gusting to 26 to 30 knots (30 to 35 mph). There were many reports of tree and power line damage, especially in Sheboygan County. Numerous vehicle accidents were noted in newspapers. Two separate rollover accidents resulted in two seriously injured drivers (indirectly-related) in the area northwest of the city of Fond du Lac. Many social events were cancelled, and some schools cancelled classes. Synoptically, low pressure moved east across central Illinois with a warm front ahead of it. Warm, moist, and somewhat unstable air was pulled north up and over a layer of cold air about 3 to 5,000 feet thick over Wisconsin.
