GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory until 6 a.m. Saturday for much of Wisconsin.
That's due to a wintry mix of precipitation moving in to the region that will change over to snow.
Roads will become slippery so drive with care on your commute home from work or if you're heading out Friday night.
FOX 11 reports the snow will last into the early morning hours, but not much accumulation is expected. Generally around one inch, maybe 2-4 inches far northwest sections.
The issue with this storm is that objects and ground temperatures are still very cold from the arctic blast this week and temperatures will just barely break freezing. So when liquid precipitation falls, it will coat and freeze to some of those cold objects. That could cause problems overnight.
High temperatures will stay around freezing for Saturday and Sunday with a chance of some more snow or rain late on Sunday.
The far northwest expects 2 to 4 inches of snow through Saturday, mainly in Price County. Lesser amounts of snow are forecast between Sawyer and Iron counties.
Far southern Wisconsin is under an air quality advisory until Friday evening, due to fine particles that are not blowing very much.
