Major winter storm impacting northern Wisconsin

MADISON (WKOW) –  A strong winter storm will cross through the Central Plains and Midwest slowing down holiday travelers.


Rain will transition to a light mix early Wednesday with the chance for precipitation ending around midday.

Winds stick around through Wednesday out of the WNW at 20-30 mph and gusts up to 40 mph! Because of this, a WIND ADVISORY will be in effect tomorrow from 8 AM to 6 PM.

Use some extra caution while driving as you’ll feel the strong crosswind on N-S roads and NE-SW roads, like US 151.

If you’re heading north and west, you’ll come across slippery and snow-covered roads.

Areas in a winter storm warning from Nebraska through NW Iowa, central and southern Minnesota and northern Wisconsin, will pick up a half foot to a foot of snow!

Toughest travel will be from this afternoon through Wednesday evening with improving conditions through Wednesday from west to east.
