Area Under Winter Weather Advisory until Friday Morning

1/12/12 – Wisconsin’s first big snowstorm of 2012 is underway. We are under a winter weather advisory from 9am this (Thursday) morning to 9am tomorrow (Friday) morning. It was already snowing overnight in most of the northern, central, and western parts of the Badger State. Hayward had almost two-inches by late last night. Hurley is expected to get a foot of snow by the time the storm leaves tomorrow. Other parts of the far north could get 6-to-10 inches. Around here we’re expecting three to four inches today and an additional two to four inches tonight for a total of five to eight inches. Parts of the state had wind gusts up to 25-miles-an-hour during the night. And stronger winds are expected today, with blowing-and-drifting snow in the forecast this afternoon in eastern and southern Wisconsin. Colder temperatures will follow. Lows in the single digits and teens are expected by this time tomorrow. Yesterday, Juneau had 50 degrees, which broke a 37-year-old record high for the date.
