The National Weather Service in Green Bay has issued a BLIZZARD WARNING, remaining in effect until 3 AM Friday, for the counties of Door, Kewaunee, & Manitowoc.
An additional accumulation of 1 – 3 inches is expected before the snow diminishes.
Temperatures will slowly drop during the night. But the heavy wet nature of the snow will limit the amount of blowing and drifting that occurs.
The wet nature of the snow will make it difficult to shovel and plow.
The combination of heavy snow, strong winds and low visibilities will make travel hazardous, especially in open areas. The latest Wisconsin road conditions can be obtained by calling 511.
The combination of heavy snow and strong winds will likely cause damage to trees and power lines, resulting in some power outages. Also, those with heart problems should not attempt to shovel the dense, moisture-laden snow.
