February 18, 2022: Strong Winds, Accumulating Snow, and Snow Squalls

A fast-moving clipper system moved across the Upper Mississippi Valley on Friday, February 18, 2022, that brought strong winds, accumulating snow, snow squalls, and very cold wind chills. Most locations across central and northeast Wisconsin received about 1 to 3 inches of snow. Strong south to southwest winds ahead of the clipper system, and strong west to northwest winds behind the system, created blowing and drifting snow across the region.

In addition, a snow squall developed along the clipper system's Arctic cold front, which caused occasional whiteout conditions and gusts as high as 62 mph. This prompted the issuance of multiple Snow Squall Warnings across central and east-central Wisconsin. In fact, these were officially the first Snow Squall Warnings issued by the NWS Green Bay office.
