6-10″ of snow to fall through Wednesday morning, travel not advised

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Are you enjoying the winter weather? Hope so, because more is on our doorstep.

A Winter Storm Warning will go into effect at midnight Tuesday for everyone in the Chippewa Valley with the exception of Polk County who will be in a Winter Weather Advisory at that time.

The main threat: snow, and plenty of it.

This system is another pan-handle hook that will swoop northeastward from the southern Rockies and pick up abundant amounts of moisture as it closes in on the upper Midwest.

List: School Closings

Snowfall amounts will range from a widespread 6 to 10 inches across Western Wisconsin with isolated amounts that could break 12 inches in some spots. The better chances for higher totals will be towards the central part of the state.

Make sure you give yourself plenty of time of the roads both Tuesday morning and Tuesday night.

Travel may still be a problem Wednesday as a heavier breeze develops out of the northwest.
