Still snowing..moderate right now...a little over 2 inches at the house...NWS says between 9-10pm snowfall rate will pick-up...could be an inch an hour.
The snow is very wet...smaller flakes..almost feels like mist in the air...wind is picking up too.

radar shows things falling apart as it approaches Onto county. I wonder if the warm wet lake air is holding it's own against the storm?

now have 3 1/2 inches of snow at my house, and snowing pretty good right now...picked up almost an inch in the last hour....radar shows the heavier bands of snow still in central and south central wisconsin..pushing to the north slowly...but the real heavy stuff is still down near madison/milwaukee..again it's pushing north..but it may take awhile to get up into far northern wisconsin and the U.P....though reports out of madison were snow falling at a rate of 2 inches an hour with some locations already reporting 7-9 inches.
Thats my last update tonight...I will post an update tomorrow morning with a few pictures (if possible).

Thanks BryanT for the updates. I will look for your reports in the morn. How far south of tomahawk are you? We have a place 15 miles NE of Antigo. I am assuming the ground is good and frozen up in your area already?

I am in Irma (10 miles south of Tomahawk..right on hwy 51)...ground was froze up pretty good...still a few wet areas..but not as bad as some I saw in the U.P.

Still snowing here 8 plus inches....and again still accumulating...hard to tell..it's blowing so hard..this is wet heavy stuff...great for base for the trails..unfortunately..I think this is gonna hurt what thin ice we had on the lakes.
