National Weather Service La Crosse WI

...Snow Into Wednesday Morning...Travel Impacts Already Being Felt
Early This Morning...

.A light wintry mix of light snow and freezing drizzle has already
spread across portions of southeast Minnesota into western
Wisconsin early this morning. This has quickly produced slick
roads in and around La Crosse and across much of southeast
Minnesota, with impacts to the morning commute.

This light wintry mix will transition to all snow through the
morning, with the snow then continuing through tonight. The snow
will persist Wednesday morning, mainly for portions of southwest
into central Wisconsin.

Snow amounts are expected to range from 2 to 4 inches northwest
of a Rochester Minnesota to Medford Wisconsin line, to 6 to 8
inches across parts of northeast Iowa into central Wisconsin. The
bulk of the snow will fall from this afternoon into the overnight
hours. Localized higher amounts remain possible. Light icing could
also occur today, generally south of Interstate 90.

More widespread impacts are expected for the evening commute.
Plan now for these travel impacts.
