Slick roads after spring snowstorm - WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

Slick roads after spring snowstorm

MADISON (WKOW) -- A few days into springtime, a snowstorm has closed schools across the state Wednesday.

In southern Wisconsin, Adams-Friendship Schools are cancelled, and Hillsboro schools were on a two hour delay. Many roads are slick this morning.

In Marathon County, our ABC affiliate, WAOW-TV reports dispatchers took calls from more than 50 drivers who got stuck in the snow, including five semis on Highway 29 near Abbotsford.

A 69-year-old Viroqua woman was killed when her vehicle slid off an icy highway in Vernon County Tuesday night. Sheriff John Spears said roads in the area were "very hazardous" at the time Gretchen Whittaker lost control, crossed the center line on Highway 27 and rolled into a ditch. The La Crosse Tribune says Whittaker was pronounced dead at the scene.

Up to one to three inches of slushy accumulation is possible today, especially from Dane County to the north and northeast, with the heaviest to the northeast.

Flooding warnings continue in Grant, Richland Center and Sauk counties.
