WISCONSIN - Several inches of snow are likely across portions of Wisconsin tonight and through Saturday. An Ice Storm could develop across northern IL, northeast IA, and far southern WI which warrants keeping an eye if you're traveling through the region Saturday morning but also those who live there which may see power outages or dangerous road conditions. A lull in activity is likely during the mid-day hours before the final burst of snow Saturday night. Here is the latest information with a detailed discussion available to members here...
