Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 2:36 PM CDT Apr. 26, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Wintry precipitation possible late tonight over north-central
Wisconsin...

Colder air will gradually filter into parts of north-central
Wisconsin tonight behind a low pressure system moving over the
central Great Lakes. With the passage of the low pressure, a
significant band of precipitation is expected to surge into the
area late tonight and linger into early Thursday. By that time,
the air will likely be cold enough to result in a mix of rain,
sleet, and freezing rain. The precipitation could even change to
snow for a time before diminishing Thursday morning.

The mixed wintry precipitation could result in hazardous travel
conditions late tonight into early Thursday morning. Though the exact
temperatures late tonight will be critical in determining the
potential for icing on untreated roads, the mostly scenario is
for some minor ice and snow accumulations to occur on grassy
surfaces and elevated objects. Thursday morning commuters and
anyone with travel plans during that time should keep an eye on
later forecasts for updated information on the potential for icy
roads. A Winter Weather Advisory may be posted this evening if it
appears likely there will be enough wintry precipitation to
impact travel.
