WISCONSIN (WKOW) -- A winter weather advisory remains in effect.

Another low pressure system is expected to produce up to an inch of additional snow from the late afternoon into the evening.

Total snowfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected through this evening.

South winds of 15 to 25 mph through this morning will cause some blowing and drifting of the snow. This will especially be the case on the bluff tops and in open areas.

Travel will be impacted, especially during the afternoon commute time. If you're traveling, be prepared for winter driving conditions.

A winter weather advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. You can get the latest road conditions by calling 511 or by clicking here.
