Weather Summary for North-Central and Northeast Wisconsin
National Weather Service Green Bay WI
940 AM CST Wed Mar 1 2017
Light to moderate snow was falling across the majority of the
forecast area this morning with accumulations at 9 AM generally
ranging from a couple tenths to 2 inches. Temperatures were near
20 degrees in north- central Wisconsin around 30 in the Fox Valley
and along the lakeshore, and are expected to remain fairly steady.
Light to moderate snow will continue today. Accumulations are
forecast to range from an inch or two over north-central
Wisconsin, to 3 to 6 inches generally south of a line from Merrill
to Iron Mountain. A sustained north to northwest wind at 15 to 25
mph with higher gusts will create some blowing and drifting of
the snow, which could make for hazardous traveling conditions.
Generally dry conditions are expected over the region tonight
under mostly cloudy skies. An exception would be over north-
central Wisconsin where lake effect snow showers are possible. A
weak clipper system is forecast to dive southeast across the
Midwest and pass south of Wisconsin on Thursday. The better snow
chances will be over southern Wisconsin, along with a continued
threat of lake effect snow showers over north-central Wisconsin.
