Winter Storm Watch

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
1138 AM CST Thu Jan 17 2019

...SNOW EXPECTED FRIDAY AFTERNOON INTO SATURDAY...

.Snow will begin spreading across southern Wisconsin Friday
afternoon, continue through Friday night, then taper off quickly
from west to east by Saturday morning. In addition, we should see
a band of lake effect snow produce higher amounts of snow for far
southeast Wisconsin. The period of heaviest snow is expected
Friday evening into the early morning hours on Saturday, possibly
lingering longer due to the lake effect influence.

Higher snowfall amounts will occur south and west of Wisconsin,
so if you plan on travel into these areas be prepared for slow and
difficult conditions.

Snow amounts of around 6 inches are expected in the Winter Storm
Watch areas, with amounts diminishing quickly to the north. Brisk
northeast winds of 15 to 20 mph will cause some blowing and
drifting snow.
