Storm to hit Wisconsin during travel weekend

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Holiday travelers are expected to meet snow-covered roads and reduced visibility in Wisconsin this weekend.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for much of the state, predicting 4 to 8 inches of snow on Saturday night and Sunday.

Senior forecaster Bob McMahon says the heaviest will be in southern Wisconsin, with it getting lighter toward far northwest Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation sent out a severe weather alert, reminding motorists to plan on potentially dangerous road conditions this weekend.

The snow will cover freezing rain that fell most of Friday in southern Wisconsin, with some places getting a tenth of an inch of ice accumulation. Some schools were closed and the rain created a glaze of ice on roads.
