GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - In some parts of the country, it was the Storm of the Century – while in Wisconsin, it just seemed like another winter’s day.

Up to 7 inches fell in the Badger State from a massive storm that rumbled through the Great Plains and the Midwest Thursday and Friday morning, dumping more than a foot as far south as Oklahoma.

In Wisconsin, the west central, southwest, and Fox Valley regions got the most with around 6 inches.

By noon, the storm had lightened up but light snow was still coming down. Many areas in the state had 2 to 4 inches by late Friday morning.

Freezing rain made for slick roads and plenty of traffic mishaps in some locations.

Schools shut down in much of the Fox Valley and northeast Wisconsin – including some larger districts like Green Bay, Appleton, and Oshkosh.

Schools were also closed in parts of Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, and Michigan. Hays Kansas had the most in the Midwest, with 17 inches.

Lingering light snow is in the Wisconsin forecast into Saturday.
