UNDATED (WHBL) - It was still snowing overnight in the northern half of Wisconsin – but the region got nowhere near the 11 inches that were predicted in some areas. Bayfield had almost four inches as of 11 p-m, and it was still coming down. It was the remnant of a much larger storm through the Midwest and Southern U-S that spawned tornadoes and killed three people – none in Wisconsin. Superior had around four inches of snow late yesterday, and Gile – along Lake Superior in Iron County – picked up just a half-inch. Forecasters said the north would get another 1-to-3 inches today. Freezing rain was a problem in the state’s mid-section. One-and-a-half inches of ice caused numerous vehicle slide-offs in Buffalo County. Meanwhile, southern Wisconsin still had light rain and drizzle overnight, after extremely heavy rains this week. Mukwonago had the biggest four-day total, with just under four-and-a-half inches. It caused flooding close to rivers, but it also did a lot to alleviate the state’s year-long drought. The U-S Drought Monitor said yesterday that the southeast third of Wisconsin is now entirely drought-free. More light snow and rain is expected statewide today, but a mostly dry weekend is expected. Sunday’s highs could get into the 50’s.
