THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH-CENTRAL AND NORTHEAST
WISCONSIN.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

MANY ROADS ACROSS THE AREA ARE STILL SNOW OR ICE COVERED AND
SLIPPERY FROM THE SNOW THAT FELL THE PAST COUPLE DAYS. ANOTHER
BAND OF SNOW IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE AN INCH OR TWO OF SNOW OVER
PORTIONS OF EAST-CENTRAL WISCONSIN THIS MORNING. LOCATIONS TO THE
SOUTHEAST OF A LINE FROM WAUTOMA TO APPLETON TO GREEN BAY TO
KEWAUNEE ARE MOST LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED BY THE SNOW BAND.

VERY COLD CONDITIONS WILL POSE A HAZARD TO ANYONE OUTDOORS WITHOUT
ADEQUATE WINTER CLOTHING TONIGHT AND EARLY FRIDAY. ANOTHER BATCH
OF ARCTIC AIR WILL BEGIN OVERSPREADING THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON...
AND SURGE ACROSS THE AREA TONIGHT. BY DAYBREAK FRIDAY...WIND
CHILLS ACROSS THE AREA WILL RANGE FROM AROUND 25 BELOW ZERO IN
CENTRAL AND NORTH-CENTRAL WISCONSIN...TO 15 BELOW TO 20 BELOW ZERO
IN THE EAST. WIND CHILLS THIS LOW INDICATE THAT EXPOSED SKIN CAN
SUFFER FROSTBITE IN AS LITTLE AS 30 MINUTES.

THE GUSTY WINDS ACCOMPANYING THE ARRIVAL OF THE ARCTIC AIR LATE
THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT WILL LIKELY ALSO RESULT IN SOME BLOWING
AND DRIFTING OF THE FRESH SNOWCOVER...ESPECIALLY IN OPEN AREAS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

HAZARDOUS TRAVEL IS POSSIBLE SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 29 FRIDAY NIGHT.
A BAND OF LIGHT SNOW COULD MOVE ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AND
EAST-CENTRAL WISCONSIN WHICH COULD MAKE FOR SLIPPERY CONDITIONS.

HAZARDOUS TRAVEL IS EXPECTED AT TIMES LATE SUNDAY NIGHT INTO
TUESDAY. A WINTRY MIX OF RAIN...SNOW...SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN
IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP LATE SUNDAY NIGHT OR MONDAY...AND THEN
CONTINUE AT TIMES THROUGH TUESDAY. SOME ICE ACCUMULATION IS
POSSIBLE EVERYWHERE...WITH THE GREATEST RISK OF ICE ACCUMULATIONS
NORTH AND WEST OF THE FOX VALLEY. THE PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO
CHANGE OVER TO RAIN NEAR LAKE MICHIGAN AND THE FOX VALLEY SOMETIME
MONDAY AFTERNOON OR MONDAY NIGHT.

THE EXPECTED COLD WEATHER INTO THE WEEKEND WILL MEAN PAVEMENT
TEMPERATURES WILL BE WELL BELOW FREEZING. AS THE PRECIPITATION
SPREADS NORTHWARD LATE SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY...THERE IS STILL
A GREAT DEAL OF UNCERTAINTY IN THE DETAILS IN THE AMOUNT OF WARM
AIR AND HOW IT WILL IMPACT AIR AND PAVEMENTS TEMPERATURES. ONLY
A DEGREE OR TWO CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RAIN AND FREEZING
RAIN. ALSO...ALTHOUGH AIR TEMPERATURES MAY BE A FEW DEGREES ABOVE
FREEZING...THE PAVEMENT TEMPERATURE MAY STILL BE BELOW FREEZING
AND CAUSE ICING ON AREA ROADS...BRIDGES AND SIDEWALKS. ANYONE WITH
TRAVEL PLANS SHOULD CONTINUE TO MONITOR LATER FORECASTS FOR THE
POTENTIAL FOR ICE ACCUMULATIONS ACROSS THE REGION.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
