8-10" of snow fell north of Green Bay on Wednesday, December 13 2017. Snow reports of 10.0" in Two Rivers, 9.7" in Sturgeon Bay, 8.6" in Abrams. Our forecast called for 3-6" with locally higher amounts in northeast Wisconsin.
There was a pretty sharp cutoff in accumulations across central Wisconsin with 0-3" south of that line and 4-8" north of it. After it looked like southeast Wisconsin might escape accumulating snow, snow arrived east of Madison.
