Storm Team 4: Region Cleans Up from Snow
MILWAUKEE - Salt trucks, plows, shovels and other snow removal tools went into full force Tuesday after a storm system dropped 3"-6" snow around southeastern Wisconsin steadily throughout the afternoon and evening on Monday.
Not every street had been cleared as of the early morning commute on Tuesday.
Milwaukee DPW crews brought out hundreds of snow-removal vehicles Tuesday morning to take care of the remaining snow-filled streets.
An estimated 350 crashes happened in the Milwaukee area on Monday.
Snow totals were a bit more to the west.
WTMJ Storm Team 4 Coverage:
Now, according to Storm Team 4Caster Scott Steele, we have the cold to worry about.
"An arctic cold front rips through the region on Thursday sending plummeting temperatures our way for the end of the week.," explains Steele.
The cold lasts through the weekend with the coldest air on Thursday and Friday.
If Milwaukee gets below zero this week (actual temperature, not wind chill), it will be the first time in more than two years since the last time we were below zero.
