The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for most of Western Wisconsin for a round of snow that arrives later this evening and tapers off tomorrow morning. The Advisory is in effect from 7 p.m. Monday evening until 6 a.m. Tuesday morning, but impacts may linger past that time, especially if there is any freezing drizzle before the precipitation ends.

Expect two to four inches of snow accumulation, and possibly a glaze of ice from freezing drizzle. The latest forecast information can be found here.

Roads will be hazardous in the morning, so allot extra time for your morning commute on Tuesday.

Beyond this system, another round of accumulating snow is likely on Wednesday and yet another one could impact us Friday into the weekend.

Stick with the Stormtracker 18 Weather Team all week for updates on each of these winter systems as well as for the potential for dangerously cold temperatures and wind chills.
