UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) A winter weather advisory continues until nine this morning in northwest and north central Wisconsin, stretching as far east as Eagle River. Forecasters now expect 2-to-5 snow totals for that region -- and it should be gone by afternoon. The National Weather Service said a low pressure system was aiming toward Wisconsin overnight -- and once it gets here, it will shift to the northeast.
Gile in Iron County had two inches of snow in two hours last evening. Poplar and Clam Lake each had two inches early this morning. Actually, the storm is dumping a lot more precipitation in southwest Wisconsin -- and it's all rain, as temperatures stayed above freezing.
Readstown in Vernon County picked up one-and-three-quarter inches of rain by four this morning. That could have been a foot-of-snow or more had it been just a few degrees cooler. Viroqua had almost one-and-a-half inches of rain, and La Crosse almost an-inch-and-a-quarter. Once it all ends, a cold front will put its clutches on. Highs tomorrow will be in the 30's-and-40's, with dry weather from tonight at least into Friday.
