Winter Weather Advisory until 12:00PM Saturday

As for tonight through Saturday morning, a wintry mix of precipitation is expected, with rain, freezing rain, and snow all looking likely. Snow amounts will generally be in the 1 to 2 inch range, with ice accumulations of a light glazing to 1/4 inch. For Saturday night through Sunday, plan on a combination of heavy snow, a wintry mix, and strong winds as a winter storm impacts the region. Snowfall in the heaviest band of 4 to 9 inches is currently expected, with locally higher possible. Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour Saturday evening could occur. A brief wintry mix could occur as the storm moves in, which may result in light icing. Winds gusting as high as 45 to 50 mph combined with the heavy snow will result in blowing and drifting snow, especially in open and unsheltered areas. Frequent reductions in visibility under 1/2 mile could occur. Travel impacts will be minor to significant for the entire area this weekend. If blowing and drifting snow becomes widespread, roads could become impassable in some rural areas. Keep up to date on the forecast and plan now for travel impacts.

* WHAT...Mixed precipitation expected. Total snow accumulations of up to one inch and ice accumulations of up to one tenth of an inch expected.

* WHERE...Monroe, Juneau and Adams Counties.

* WHEN...From midnight tonight to noon CST Saturday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions.
