2/20/2011 Madison, WI Ice Storm

While the heavy snow hit Minnesota, BNVN Weather Paparazzi Shannon Lupton was out covering the winter storms in Madison, WI on Sunday that coated the area with ice due to the freezing rain.

Snow plows were busy trying to clear away the slush on the roads before it froze solid but it wasn’t soon enough for some drivers who ended up in the ditch or stuck in backed up traffic on Interstate 94.

After the sun went down, the temperature’s dropped, the freezing rain became thicker and coated street signs. Tree’s and automobiles were also coated with at least a quarter inch of ice.
