...GUSTY WINDS AND A LIGHT SNOWFALL COULD CREATE HAZARDOUS TRAVEL
LATE TONIGHT AND TUESDAY...

THOUGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE WARMER TONIGHT THAN PREVIOUS
NIGHTS...INCREASING SOUTHWEST WINDS AND READINGS IN THE SINGLE
DIGITS ABOVE ZERO WILL MAINTAIN WIND CHILL READINGS BETWEEN 10 AND
20 BELOW THIS EVENING. MAKE SURE TO DRESS APPROPRIATELY IF HEADING
OUT TONIGHT.

STRONG GUSTY SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL CONTINUE OVERNIGHT INTO TUESDAY MORNING AS
LIGHT SNOW SPREADS FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE REGION.
EVEN THOUGH SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BE AN INCH OR LESS
IN MOST PLACES...THE STRONG WINDS WILL CAUSE BLOWING AND DRIFTING
SNOW AND LOW VISIBILITY...ESPECIALLY IN OPEN AREAS. ALLOW FOR
EXTRA TIME FOR THE MORNING COMMUTE AS SLICK ROADWAYS AND POOR
VISIBILITIES COULD DEVELOP.

THE STRONGEST WINDS AND MOST SIGNIFICANT BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW
WILL OCCUR IN OPEN AREAS AND ALSO NEAR THE BAY AND LAKE. IN
PARTICULAR...TRAVELING CONDITIONS COULD BECOME DIFFICULT DUE TO
BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW ALONG THE WEST SIDE OF THE DOOR
PENINSULA WHEN WINDS SHIFT TO THE WEST AND NORTHWEST LATE TOMORROW
MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON. ICE FISHERMAN ON GREEN BAY AND LAKE
WINNEBAGO COULD ALSO FIND IT VERY DIFFICULT TO BE OUT ON THE ICE
TONIGHT AND TUESDAY.
