As expected, the winter's first storm nailed Wisconsin hard.

"There was very heavy snow in Wisconsin just east of Superior. There's a report of 13 inches in South Range and heavy snow all the way across through Ashland along the South Shore," said Tom Lonka, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Duluth.

Duluth received 2.6 inches.

"We don't expect to see too much more snow than what we have right now, but there will be a lot of blowing snow the rest of today," Lonka said. "It is going to be quite windy. The wind chills are going to quite low."

A winter storm warning for the Duluth area, up the North Shore and across northwestern Wisconsin remains in effect until midnight.

People near Lake Superior along the North Shore, in Duluth and down into Carlton County can expect to see north winds of 25 to 35 mph today, with gusts to 45 mph near the lake. The winds will cause blowing and drifting snow and local whiteout conditions. Driving will be hazardous today and this evening.

Cold Arctic air will spread across the region as the storm departs, the NWS said. Wind chills will drop as low as the 20s and 30s below zero tonight and Thursday morning.
