LIGHT TO MODERATE SNOW AND WINTRY MIX MOVING IN FROM THE SOUTH
LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING

A low pressure system will move just southeast of the area late
later this afternoon and tonight. This will bring a wintry mix of
precipitation to central and east-central Wisconsin during the
late afternoon and early evening. The mixed precipitation will
change to mainly snow as it moves into colder air over northern
Wisconsin this evening.

Mixed precipitation in the south and east should change to all
snow later tonight before tapering off Sunday morning. Snow over
northern Wisconsin should persist until midday Sunday. Total
accumulations of 4 to 6 inches are expected north, 1 to 3 inches
in the south. The snow will be heavy and wet, which will make
snow removal more difficult. Ice accumulations of a tenth of an
inch or less are expected for locations roughly southeast of a
Marshfield to Marinette line.

In addition, winds will gust to 25 to 35 mph out of the east this
afternoon and evening, then out of the west on Sunday. The amount
of blowing and drifting snow should be limited due to the heavy,
wet nature of the snow.

Including the cities of Sturgeon Bay, Fish Creek, Sister Bay,
Shawano, Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids, Stevens Point, Plover,
New London, Waupaca, Clintonville, Appleton, Green Bay, Kewaunee,
Luxemburg, Little Suamico, Sobieski, Brookside, Oconto,
and Pensaukee
