URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LA CROSSE WI
922 AM CST MON JAN 16 2017

...ICY TRAVEL FOR MOST TODAY INTO TUESDAY...

.IOWA DOT RECOMMENDS NO TRAVEL ACROSS NORTHEAST IOWA THIS MORNING
DUE TO WIDESPREAD ICING. AT LEAST ONE PLOW TRUCK HAS SLID INTO A
DITCH ON HIGHWAY 18/52 BETWEEN CALMAR AND MARQUETTE. ICING HAS
ALSO BEEN REPORTED ACROSS PARTS OF SOUTHWEST WISCONSIN. ICING HAS
MOVED INTO AREAS FROM EAST AND SOUTH OF ROCHESTER MINNESOTA TO
AROUND LA CROSSE AND MAUSTON WISCONSIN. A TINY BIT OF FREEZING
RAIN QUICKLY MADE THE SIDEWALK AT THE LA CROSSE WEATHER OFFICE
VERY SLICK.

FREEZING RAIN TO SLEET WILL CONTINUE THIS MORNING...MOSTLY NEAR
AND SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 90. THE PRECIPITATION WILL DIMINISH IN
INTENSITY... WITH THE MAIN ACCUMULATIONS SHIFTING INTO EASTERN
WISCONSIN.

ANOTHER SLUG OF A WINTRY MIX RETURNS LATE THIS MORNING AND
AFTERNOON...ADVANCING TO THE INTERSTATE 94 CORRIDOR BY EARLY
EVENING. FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET WILL BE THE MAIN PRECIPITATION
TYPES. ICING WILL OCCUR AND IMPACT ANY TRAVEL INTO AND THROUGH
THE EVENING COMMUTE. FARTHER SOUTH OVER NORTHEAST IOWA AND
SOUTHWEST WISCONSIN...IT COULD WARM ENOUGH FOR RAIN. HOWEVER...
COLD ROAD TEMPERATURES COULD STILL LEAD TO ADDITIONAL ICE
ACCUMULATIONS.

THE BULK OF THE ACCUMULATIONS WILL FALL DURING THE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING HOURS. IF NOT ALREADY ICY...ROADS WILL QUICKLY GO FROM
SLIPPERY TO HAZARDOUS.

PLAN AHEAD NOW FOR THESE POOR TRAVEL CONDITIONS. AVOID TRAVEL IF
YOU CAN...ESPECIALLY LATER THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.
