UNDATED (WSAU) Northeast Wisconsin was hit the hardest by the season’s first major snowstorm.

Antigo had the most – 14 inches – and Starks in Oneida County had 11 inches by mid-afternoon yesterday.

Shawano County authorities said about 4,000 homes lost their power in the Wittenberg-Birnamwood area, as the heavy snow took down numerous electric lines. The Public Service utility said over 8300 customers in central and northeast Wisconsin were still without power by 3:30 this morning – and most were in the Antigo, Waupaca, Wabeno, and Stevens Point areas. An emergency shelter opened last evening at the Waupaca Middle School.

In southern Wisconsin, Alliant Energy was working on large numbers of outages in the Baraboo area. Much of south central and southwest Wisconsin had 4-to-8 inches. Madison had just over an inch.

The storm cleared out last evening, but flurries moved into parts of western Wisconsin late last night. Forecasters say the west will have more snow showers this morning – but skies will clear up this afternoon from west-to-east. And some of yesterday’s snow will melt, with highs expected in the upper-30’s to near 40 statewide.
