Ground blizzard conditions is something we don’t see much of here in Wisconsin. We have many trees to help cut down seeing blizzard like conditions like we did today.
An Arctic cold front blasted through northwestern WI this afternoon. There was an area of light to moderate snow out ahead of the cold front. Behind the Arctic cold front, winds turned to the west and became strong 25 to 35 MPH with winds gusting from 40 to 45 MPH. This caused a ground blizzard with near to whiteout conditions throughout much of Barron County. Many accidents have been reported throughout the County. This video package will show the ground blizzard conditions throughout the County. The last part will show vehicles fishtailing as they try to make a turn.
