The National Weather Service says an approaching low pressure system could dump five to nine inches of snow in central Wisconsin this weekend. The winter storm is expected to affect most of southern Wisconsin starting Saturday afternoon and continuing through early Monday morning.
Light to moderate rates of snowfall are forecast, with total accumulations of up to nine inches for southern Wisconsin including Milwaukee, with lesser amounts to the north. Winds at 10 to 15 mph will create some blowing and drifting snow.
Locations in Iron and Vilas counties had up to a foot of snow Wednesday night through Thursday evening. Communities further from Lake Superior got much less — about two inches in Eagle River and Rhinelander.
