going to pull in another win for us. if you're traveling up to the packer game, i don't know about you, but i would leave super early, at least however long it takes you normally to get to lambeau, add another hour and a half to two hours on that. and maybe incidents by the time you are driving up here in the snow is the powdery stuff and slippery. it's the worst to drive on. i'm terrified to leave here later today, i might just another night. as you can see, through 7:00 a.m., seeing moderate sn, some of this will be about a half-inch per hour and tenders holding steady between the mid and upper 20's. between 7:00 and 10:00 a.m., that's what heavy snow bands will continue to impact us across wisconsin. this is going to be the worst for traveling. i'm not saying by noon it's going to be that much better, but the snow is going to start to get a little lighter at that point in a look at the final push of everything between 3:00 and 7:00 p.m., a cold front moves through an snow moves out area storm total still looking
5:50 am
about five inches to eight inches. we received about one inches to three inches overnight, some areas and rock county got almost six inches, and this is brand-new information you didn't have last night. fond du lac and sheboygan counties now are included in his winter storm warning, which lasted until 8:00 p.m. tonight. this is where you are getting heavier snow bands. this is how snow sets up, is not like rain, it's like he's weird bands and streaks rolling about a half-inch an hour. there's an area of low pressure that hasn't moved much overnight last night, now it's in iowa. that front extending only through serious northern illinois. you can see exactly why that heavier snow band has shifted further north because the front has moved a little bit as well. take you to the rest of the day. heavy snow will be continuing here throughout the day. 1:00 p.m. looks kind of the same
5:51 am
it still doesn't look very good. right around 4:30, seeing it starting to end in areas in the fond du lac counties as well. in madison and milwaukee county, it should be ending around 6:00, 7:00, and after that, the cold is moving to the east. if you're worried about monday morning's commute, i would be concerned. clouds are doing their job today, making sure it's treated, but it still is going to be slippery. storm totals overall, still on par with five inches to eight inches. to the north, that's what you can expect. bottom line, that winter storm warning continues until 8:00 p.m. today, we should see an additional two inches to four inches in the travel will be tricky. after that, he gets really cold. future windchill throughout the rest of the work week is going
