UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) The middle-third of Wisconsin got the brunt of yesterday's snowstorm, as places that were expecting two-inches had a lot more. Stevens Point received the most with 10 inches. Friendship, Eau Claire, and Mosinee picked up around 9-inches. Wausau and Neillsville had around 8 and Green Bay seven-and-a-half.
Three people were killed about 1:15 yesterday afternoon, when a car and a propane truck collided in Oneida County on Highway 51 in the town of Cassian. Sheriff's officials said the snow was probably a factor, but they're still investigating.
In Marathon County blowing snow was blamed for a chain-reaction crash involving about 20-vehicles on Interstate-39 near Knowlton, north of Stevens Point. Three people were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. Northbound I-39 has since re-opened.
Winds hit 55-miles-an-hour in Sheboygan. In the Appleton area, planes were grounded yesterday afternoon at the Outagamie County Regional Airport in a battle to keep runways open. The Central Wisconsin Airport at Mosinee had two flights canceled, and a few others were delayed. Lesser amounts of snow fell in the northern and southern thirds of Wisconsin.
The Madison and Milwaukee regions had about 3-to-4 inches. Another round of cold air moved in after the snow headed east.
Highs today are expected to be in the teens throughout Wisconsin under sunny skies. It's supposed to be warmer tomorrow, with more snow statewide.
