Winter Storm Watch

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
220 PM CST Thu Jan 17 2019

...SNOW EXPECTED FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT...

.Snow will begin spreading across southern Wisconsin Friday
afternoon, continue through Friday night, then taper off quickly
from west to east over inland areas by Saturday morning. However,
due to lake effect snowfall kicking in, we should see the snow
continue across the far southeast through Saturday night.

Travelers should be aware that higher snowfall amounts will occur
south and west of Wisconsin, so if you`re heading into those
regions be prepared for slow and difficult conditions.

Snow amounts of around 6 inches are expected in the Winter Storm
Watch area, with amounts diminishing quickly to the north.
Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha counties could see 6 to 8 inches due
to the lake effect. Brisk northeast winds of 15 to 20 mph will
cause some blowing and drifting snow.
