353 AM CDT Sat Apr 14 2018

Updated headline coding is below. Complete discussion to follow a
little later this morning.

Issued at 348 AM CDT Sat Apr 14 2018

Ongoing heavy wintry precipitation forced an upgrade to a warning
for much of the forecast area around midnight. Will extend that
forward through the rest of the event for the current warning
area, adding in adjacent areas with (hopefully) appropriate
timing. There still looks to be a lull during the day, but will
need to handle that with the specifics of the grids and in the
text products.

.AVIATION...for 06Z TAF Issuance
Issued at 1214 AM CDT Sat Apr 14 2018

A winter storm moving slowly across the Midwest will
produce gusty northeast winds and IFR conditions across all but
far northern Wisconsin tonight through early Saturday. Precipitation
will be mostly snow, but may be mixed with sleet and freezing rain
south of a Wisconsin Rapids to Green Bay line. Snow plows will be
needed in most areas, and blowing and drifting snow could be a
consideration. The precipitation should diminish by midday Saturday,
with MVFR or VFR conditions in the afternoon.

The storm system will get close enough to the region Saturday night
and Sunday to bring significant snow to most of Wisconsin. It could
be mixed with sleet or freezing rain across the east central portion
of the state. Plows will be need in many areas Saturday night and
Sunday. Gusty northeast winds could produce blowing and drifting
snow Saturday night and Sunday.
