Tuesday is expected to bring another round of fresh snow to the Badger State, with winter storm warnings and advisories in effect for much of Wisconsin.

Lori Getter with Wisconsin Emergency Management says a lot of snow is predicted to fall before the day is through, with up to a foot forecast for the southwestern corner of the state, up to 10 inches in the Madison area, and several inches along the eastern edge of the state.

Getter says it’s the kind of storm where people should think about staying home, if possible. If you do head out, take precautions. That includes packing emergency supplies, such as a shovel, blankets, and food, in your vehicle. Motorists are also urged to call the state’s 511 travel line or check online for current road conditions before deciding to drive.

While the snow will be a concern today, warmer temperatures and possible rain could cause flooding problems near the end of the week.
