It could be a white Thanksgiving for some Wisconsinites. Meteorologist Chris McGinness of Milwaukee’s WJDT says rain will turn to snow, from north-to-south across the state, late Wednesday into Thanksgiving. McGinness says the further north you are the more likely there will be accumulation of snow, southern parts will be “slushy.”
The CBS 58 Morning News meteorologist says the warm temperatures this month means the white stuff will help melt the snow on the roads and allow for salt trucks to be dispatched on time. Nevertheless, he cautions drivers to prepare for affected visibility on the busy travel day.
Meanwhile the DOT reports most lanes should be open this holiday period as most road projects have been completed. The biggest inconvenience for drivers could be on I-94 from Kenosha to the Illinois line, where a major re-construction project is taking place
The weather will clear just in time for shoppers to clear their wallets on Friday. McGinness predicts the weather to be quiet this weekend as well.
