news. that's hard work. hats off to you. lindsey: thank you, a wimp with snow, i'm scared to drive in it, i was telling my husband, no. you can sleep with the cats tonight. it scares me it should scare you. it is going to be slippery throughout the day, but we are from wisconsin. we know the activity. this is our second snowfall of the season. it will be like this here throughout the rest of today. earlier today we had the moderate snow. if you are in the heavier bands, that's what i'm talking about. we had some of that activity giving us a half-inch at hour at times. a lot of that has shifted to the north. sheboygan and fond du lac county, we had a winter weather advisory, and this morning a winter storm warning. what is happening. the heavier snow bands have shifted north. so the national weather service extended the warming up to you.
7:50 am
the north. and the southern part of southeast wisconsin, if you are farther south of 94, this is where we are starting to see a little bit of a break. little lull in the action. throughout the next half hour. because it is starting to fulfill back in areas to the west. if you need to run an errand and go to the grocery store really quick. and pickup cinnamon roles now is the time to do it. get gas and shovels do it. this evening, the snow will be ending. overall it is lighter in nature. we are still looking at the same snowfall totals between five and eight inches for the entire event. some folks in janesville and waukesha county, rock counties received between five and six inches already. so winter storm warnings through 8:00 p.m. and the map out here, the heavier snow bands to the north of us now. the break, you can see what is going on here, a little bit of
7:51 am
already starting to fill in prairie due -- prairie due clean. going to the packer game today. the roads are slippery. if they are blue, that means snow-covered. and pink it is slippery out there. so take extra time traveling up there. we're hoping green bay will pull another win for us. nonetheless, this is the area of low pressure right now. in iowa and you can see the front extending into illinois. we have that break right now. here is 11:00, we may see another break here. some of the weather models picking it up. but it fills back in for the afternoon. and should not be as heavy in nature as it was over night. and 4:00 and 5:00, it starts to push towards the east with the cold front. we're done with the event by 7:00 and 8:00, the winter storm warnings are out of here and good to go. again the entire storm total on
7:52 am
past couple of days. five to eight inches. i moved the line here a little bit farther north to include fond du lac and sheboygan counties. but i anticipate two to four inches throughout the day. if you can stay home, i would definitely stay home. after that the bitterly cold temperatures. that will start to sneak in here as we head into wednesday. well, actually tuesday. tuesday it starts. that is when the cold snap starts. that will happen on tuesday. the degrees for the high. and overnight lows two. and wednesday and thursday, single digits folks and lows in negative numbers. and next week more fun with snow on the way start on friday and into next saturday. so another repeat. andy: it is cold looking at that, thank you. wisn 12 news 5:52. take caution this morning heading outside. we are under a winter storm warning and give you pictures live here.

saw the map to green bay area. lindsey: the thing about it, the heavier snow band has shifted to the north. so will be more difficult to drive. so know that maybe in milwaukee county leaving or waukesha, and it might be all right. don't let that fool you. because once you get farther north the conditions will deteriorate. you can see green bay is getting more snow than i expected. i didn't think this heavy band so this differently has progressed since overnight last night. we are still on par with what we're anticipating with snowfall totals. in the range of five to eight inches. waukesha is up to five inches. the snow is not over yet. there is a break here, this pocket of dry air that is kind of starting to slowly moisten back up. you can see the snow building back in here. that is the cool thing about the radar and the loop. you can see the trends, i like to show this to you.
