A significant Spring winter storm impacted much of the United States between April 13 and April 16.  Across southern Wisconsin, this storm led to severe thunderstorms, wind gusts between 45 and 50 MPH, sleet, freezing rain, and heavy snow.  Waves of nearly 15 feet along the Lake Michigan shoreline also led to localized lakeshore flooding.  

Across southern Wisconsin, the heaviest snow fell along and north of a line from the Dells to Fond du Lac to Sheboygan, where 6-10" was observed.  Further north into Central Wisconsin, snow amounts approached 30" across the Wausau to Green Bay corridor. 


Here is the latest estimated snow totals across Wisconsin.  

A few of the highest totals include:

Carlsville /Door County/...31.6"
Tigerton /Shawano County/....30.6"
Stiles /Oconto County/...30.5"
Peshtigo / Marinette County/.....27.5"
