At 150 am, radar indicated an intense band of wintry precipitation
centered along a line from near La Crosse, to Marshfield, to
Sturgeon Bay. Most of the precipitation within the band was
falling as heavy snow, with snowfall rates of 1-2 inches per hour
likely occurring. Lighter snows were occurring along the
northern edge of the band. The southern portion of the band, from
Wautoma to the Fox Cities to Manitowoc, was likely a mix of snow
and sleet. South of that, sleet and freezing rain was occurring
along the southern edge of the band. Freezing rain and icing of
elevated surfaces was occurring in the Oshkosh area.

The band is expected to remain in place through daybreak, through
it should gradually begin to weaken.

The heavy wintry precipitation combined with strong northeast
winds was producing extremely difficult travel conditions. Near
white-out conditions were occurring at times. Travel is
discouraged, except in the case of an emergency. If you must
travel early this morning, use extreme caution.
