URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
853 PM CST Thu Feb 23 2017

...ICE AND SNOW ACCUMULATIONS LIKELY TONIGHT INTO FRIDAY NIGHT...

.Strong low pressure passing by just to the south of Wisconsin is
expected to bring snow and ice accumulations to southern
Wisconsin tonight into Friday night. The highest snow and ice
totals are likely along and north of a line from Mineral Point to
Madison to Port Washington.

Though icing could be limited on sidewalks and roadways due to
initial warm temperatures, elevated tree limbs and power lines
will respond to the colder temperatures faster and will be more
susceptible to ice accumulations. Windy conditions are also
expected with this storm, which could increase the potential for
tree limbs and power lines to come down.
