At 1215 am radar indicated widespread precipitation across the
entire area except for a few locations near the Upper Michigan
border and northern Door county. The precipitation was shifting
north, and was part of a large band of precipitation that extended
all the way south into the Gulf states. The precipitation across
the area was falling mainly as snow, though locations along and
southeast of a line from Oshkosh to Appleton to Green Bay to
Sturgeon Bay were receiving primarily sleet.

The sleet was caused by slightly warmer air that had worked into
the area above the surface. It should continue in these areas for
another hour or two, then a gradual transition back to mainly snow
will progress southeast across these areas.

Elsewhere, snow is expected to overspread the remainder of the
area shortly. Then snow, heavy at times, will continue for the
rest of the night. Temperatures will remain below freezing, so the
strong northeast winds will generate considerable blowing and
drifting of the snow.

Extremely difficult travel conditions are expected overnight.
Travel is not recommended, except in the case of an emergency. If
you must travel, take adequate precautions to ensure you remain
safe if you become stranded. Make sure your vehicles tires,
battery, lights, defrosters and windshield wipers are in good
working order before beginning your trip. Make sure the gasoline
tank is full before crossing open country. Be sure to take along a
flashlight, blankets, food, and water. If you become stranded,
remain with your vehicle.
