Weather advisory active for much of Wisconsin tonight

Posted:

The National Weather Service will have a winter weather advisory active from 4 p.m. Wednesday to 6 p.m. Thursday for Marathon, Wood, Portage, Adams, Juneau, Waupaca, Waushara, Shawano, Clark, Taylor and Jackson Counties.

The advisory is being issued in advance of a winter storm forecast to impact the region starting Wednesday evening.

A lake effect snow advisory will be active until 6 p.m. Thursday for Ashland and Iron Counties.

The storm is expected to initially provide snow with the potential for a period of time with freezing drizzle late tonight. Conditions should then again convert over to snow by Thursday.

Heavier snow accumulation totals are forecast toward the Green Bay metro area and in points along Wisconsin's Lake Michigan shoreline. According to the advisory from the National Weather Service between 3 and 4 inches are possible across a wide swath of central Wisconsin.

Totals exceeding 5" seem most likely in eastern Wisconsin.

Motorists should use caution during the Wednesday evening commute, traveling overnight Wednesday and early Thursday as well.
