At 350 am, radar indicated an band of wintry precipitation, some
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. Though the overall intensity of the
snowfall had diminished a bit during the past couple hours,
snowfall rates of up to an inch per hour were still likely with
the heavier pockets of snow withing the core of the band. 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 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.
