...SNOW WILL DIMINISH BY MID-MORNING, BUT ANOTHER ROUND OF HEAVY
SNOW EXPECTED LATE TODAY INTO SUNDAY...

At 530 am, radar indicated an band of wintry precipitation, some
still quite heavy, centered along a line from near La Crosse, to
Marshfield, to Sturgeon Bay. Most of the precipitation within the
band was falling as snow. Although pockets of heavy snow persisted
within the band, the overall intensity of the band continued to
slowly diminish. That trend is expected to continue.

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 fringe of
the band. Freezing rain and icing of elevated surfaces continued in
the Oshkosh area.

The band should weaken sufficiently so that just periods of light
snow and drizzle or freezing drizzle are likely by mid-morning.
The lighter precipitation will continue into the afternoon. Some
uptick in the precipitation is anticipated during the afternoon,
though it is likely the next round of heavy precipitation will
hold off until evening.

The snowfall overnight combined with strong northeast winds was
producing extremely difficult travel conditions early this
morning. Near white-out conditions are still possible at times,
especially in open areas. If you must travel early this morning,
use extreme caution.
