Advisory

Winter Weather Advisory until 12:00AM Wednesday

A narrow band of heavier snow will be found north of an Austin, Minnesota to Black River Falls, WI line into this evening. Some locations in this band could see snowfall totals approaching 6 inches. Even though this is just hours away, there is still some uncertainty on the exact location of this 1 to 3 county wide band and changes to the forecast could occur. This snow could also end as a brief period of freezing drizzle. South of the heavier band of snow, a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain is expected. Up to a tenth of an inch of ice is possible in Fayette and Clayton counties in northeast Iowa and in Crawford, Grant, and Richland counties in southwest Wisconsin. Snow totals will be up to 2 inches, though once again, there is some uncertainty with the placement of the heaviest snow, and higher snow totals could occur. Late afternoon and evening travel is likely to be impacted, including the evening commute.

* WHAT...A mix of snow and freezing drizzle expected. Total snow accumulations of up to two inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze expected. Locally higher snow amounts are possible. This wintry mix will impact the evening commute.

* WHERE...Near the Interstate 90 corridor in Wisconsin, northeast Iowa and southeast Minnesota.

* WHEN...From 3 PM this afternoon to midnight CST tonight.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions will impact the evening commute.

* AFFECTED AREAS: JUNEAU ... ALLAMAKEE ... LA CROSSE ... HOUSTON ... HOWARD ... MITCHELL ... ADAMS ... MONROE ... WINNESHIEK ... VERNON ... FLOYD ... CHICKASAW
