Winter Weather Advisory

National Weather Service Green Bay WI
1222 PM CST Thu Feb 23 2017

...Winter returns late tonight through Friday night...

.After a stretch of very mild temperatures this week, winter with
all its impacts will return starting late tonight. A developing
winter storm is expected to track over southern Wisconsin Friday
before departing to the east late Friday night. The storm may
produce a mixture of precipitation late tonight into Friday. The
mix will turn to all snow later Friday into Friday night as
blustery northeast winds bring in colder air.

There is still some uncertainty with snow amounts due to the mix
potential. Nevertheless area roads will turn hazardous for the
end of the work week.

Clintonville, Appleton, Green Bay, Kewaunee, Luxemburg,
Redgranite, Wautoma, Oshkosh, Neenah, Menasha, Chilton, Brillion,

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north-central and northeast

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Expect hazardous travel conditions to develop across the area
tonight. A strong low pressure system will bring wintry
precipitation to the area starting tonight. Snow is expected to
spread from southwest to northeast and may mix or change to
freezing rain in parts of central and east central Wisconsin
toward daybreak. There could be as much as 2 to 3 inches of snow
accumulation over most of the area by Friday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Hazardous travel conditions are likely to persist through at
least midday on Saturday.

This storm system is forecast to produce another 3 to 5 inches of
snow across much of the area Friday night through Saturday
morning. By Saturday afternoon the snow should be gone, except for
some lingering lake effect in the far north.

Another significant storm system may impact the area during the
early part of the upcoming work week, but there remains too much
uncertainly to get a good handle on timing or precipitation type
and amounts associated with it.


Spotter are requested to report snowfall amounts or any mixed
