"Doesn't surprise me:" Wintry weather lingers into April in southeast Wisconsin
MEQUON -- The snow came down fast and furious at times in southeast Wisconsin Friday night, April 7th. Without a doubt, the low visibility made drivers a little uneasy.
The roads were quickly covered as the snow fell at a very fast rate. Luckily, like a lot of spring snow, it started melting quickly as well and the roads dramatically improved.
"It was really bad for about 20 minutes. I looked out the window and I'd say we got about an inch in 20 minutes," said a driver.
"I remember it snowing in May, so it doesn't surprise me." said a driver.
