... Snow creating hazardous travel conditions in northern Wisconsin...

Snow showers were widespread across far northern Wisconsin at
midnight. The snow was falling quite heavily at times... with many
locations in Vilas and northern Oneida counties reporting 1 to 2
inches of snow already. Winds were also quite gusty... and
producing some blowing and drifting of the snow. Travel conditions
across the region were reported to be poor... due to low
visibilities and very slippery roadways.

The heaviest snow is falling now and will continue through about
200 am or 300 am. Although snow showers will continue after that
time... the intensity of the snow is expected to diminish.

The snow showers will expand south and east... and will affect the
remainder of north-central and northeast Wisconsin in the hours
after midnight. Accumulations in these areas will be much
lighter... but there could still be enough snow to coat the
roadways and lead to hazardous travel conditions.

Anyone traveling across northern Wisconsin should use extra
caution.

... A brief preview of wintry weather expected overnight...

An intense upper level disturbance will move southeast across the
area overnight. Much colder air will surge into the area as the
disturbance passes through. The sharply colder temperatures...
combined with strong north winds and snow showers... will produce a
brief period of wintry conditions... especially over northern and
eastern Wisconsin.

Snow showers will shift southeast overnight... and should arrive in
east central Wisconsin between midnight and 2 am. Brief heavy snow
showers are possible in northern and eastern Wisconsin
overnight... but are most likely over Vilas County... where lake
enhancement will occur. Snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are
likely in Vilas County by morning... with around an inch over much
of far northeast Wisconsin. A dusting to a half inch is possible
in parts of east central Wisconsin. Travel conditions could become
hazardous late tonight into early Friday... especially over far
northern Wisconsin.

Very windy conditions are expected late tonight into Friday...
with the strongest winds occurring over the eastern Fox Valley and
Lakeshore areas. Wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph are expected across
most of the area... with 45 to 50 mph gusts near the lake and Bay.
Locally higher wind gusts are possible over northern Door County.
Winds this strong can make driving high profile vehicles difficult
and can cause minor tree and power line damage.

Most people will want to find their winter coat... hat... and
gloves before venturing outdoors Friday morning... as wind chill
readings are forecast to drop into the teens to lower 20s. Winds
are expected to slowly diminish late Friday afternoon. However...
it will still be quite windy and very chilly for trick-or-treaters
in eastern Wisconsin.
