Winter Weather Advisory in effect in southern Wisconsin

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect until 6 a.m. Monday for all of southern Wisconsin.

It's in effect for the following counties: Adams, Columbia, Crawford, Dane, Dodge, Grant, Green, Green Lake, Iowa, Jefferson, Juneau, Lafayette, Marquette, Richland, Rock, Sauk and Walworth.

27 Storm Track Meteorologist Laurie Mercurio says the Madison area can expect about four to six inches of light, fluffy snow. The Milwaukee area had seen about 4 inches of snowfall by early Sunday evening.

Here are some snow totals as of 10 p.m. Sunday night:

  • Middleton -- 5 in.
  • Madison -- 4.8 in.
  • Lake Mills -- 4.5 in.
  • Oregon -- 4.3 in.

The snow will taper off early Monday morning, but after that, Mercurio says blowing snow could be a problem for drivers. Wind chills are also expected to drop below zero.

The National Weather Service says the snow could cause some difficulty for drivers. Officials say you should be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibilities.
