(2/19/13) Much of Wisconsin got another fresh coating of snow overnight and this morning – plus a dose of strong winds that blew it around.
Central and northeast Wisconsin picked up another 2-to-4 inches. Southwest Wisconsin had less than an inch. Some places along Lake Superior got more, as expected. Gile in Iron County had seven-inches by 10 o'clock. In Dodge County, authorities said blowing snow caused multiple traffic crashes on a one-mile stretch of the Highway 41 expressway. Officials said a couple of semi-trucks spun out and blocked parts of the four-lane – and other vehicles slid off as a result. There was no early word of serious injuries. Parts of central and southeast Wisconsin still had light snow just before the noon hour. It's all supposed to clear out by tonight, except near Lake Superior – and colder air will move in. Temperatures are expected to fall below zero throughout the Badger State, at around 3-to-12 below. Brisk wind chills are also forecast. Another round of snow is due in Thursday and Friday, with light to moderate amounts being predicted for now.
