UPDATE: Storm progress, early snow totals


The heaviest snow associated with Sunday's winter storm has ended for the Wauasu area and points southward.

Locations in the Northwoods will still experience locally heavy snow for several hours tonight before the main band of moisture moves eastward out of Wisconsin. 

Though significant additional snowfall is not expected tonight, the possibility for areas of wintry mix will remain into early Monday morning.  That includes lingering light snow showers or pockets of freezing rain and sleet.

Motorists should continue to use caution as snow covered roads are slick, and any areas of wintry mix that develop overnight could make previously cleared roads quite icy. 

An additional concern will be for fog to develop tonight as relatively mild air creeps northward overnight.  The atmosphere has plenty of moisture in place, and winds are forecast to become light and variable by Monday morning.  Those conditions are typically favorable for fog to develop. 

Preliminary snowfall totals vary.  As of 8:46 p.m., reports from the National Weather Service, Storm Track 9's trained weather watchers and unconfirmed viewer reports place several inches of snow having fallen in a stretch of a few hours. 

Early totals indicate 5.5" having fallen in Mosinee and 5" in Antigo.  Just over 4" has been measured in Wausau, with 4" readings taken in Marshfield, Whiting, Elton, New London, Nekoosa and Stevens Point.  3.75" has been recorded in Polonia, and 3.5" in Abbotsford.  3" totals were reported in Merrill, Big Flats, Plainfield, Whittlesey and Scandinavia.  Just over 2" was reported in Arkdale.

The National Weather Service received a report of 6" having fallen in Rothschild, observed by a trained weather spotter.
