Today's Outlook

Bitter Cold Blast Coming Back

Tuesday’s snow has moved on and now unseasonably cold air has settled into the state. Wednesday and Thursday will be chilly across the state before a warm-up finally returns by later this week and the weekend. High temperatures will be in the teens through Thursday before we get back into the thirties by the weekend. The six to ten day outlook is indicating a warm-up for the Midwest for the weekend of the 14th in Milwaukee. 

We get many types of severe storms in winter here in Wisconsin, but the worst of those are ice storms. Wednesday is the anniversary of the biggest ice storm to hit southeast Wisconsin, and one of the biggest ice storms for the whole state. It occurred back in 1976 and this devastating ice storm completely snapped hundreds of utility poles, trees and downed thousands of power lines. Some ice accumulations were measured at an incredible five inches in diameter on some tree limbs.

Around 600,000 people were directly affected by this ice storm and about one hundred thousand folks were without power during the peak of this ice storm. Some rural areas were without power for ten days. Counties from Waukesha and Walworth to Fond du Lac, Dodge and west to Madison were declared federal disaster areas.
