Special Statement

Statement as of 2:12 AM CDT on October 31, 2014

... Wintry weather overspreading the area...

At 200 am... radar indicated clusters of showers... some of which
were producing heavy snow... spreading southeast across Wisconsin.
The heaviest snows were now occurring in central Wisconsin.
Temperatures in this area had been above freezing... so that may
initially prevent much accumulation on the roadways. But as
temperatures fall this morning... some slippery spots could
develop. The heavier snow showers will shift out of this area in
an hour or two... leaving only flurries by daybreak. Snow
accumulations of up to a half inch are possible... mainly on
grassy areas.

Meanwhile... the snow showers that were occurring across far
north-central Wisconsin had diminished. The intensity of the snow
in this area will continue to fluctuate as additional snow showers
form over Lake Superior and move inland. But overall... the
snowfall will not be as heavy as it was late Thursday evening.
Temperatures in this area were generally a couple degrees below
freezing... so the gusty winds were producing some blowing and
drifting of the snow. Travel conditions across the region were
reported to be poor... as untreated roadways were snow covered and
slippery.

As the showers shift into east-central Wisconsin... the initial
precipitation will probably be rain. But falling temperatures
will cause the rain to change to snow... so a burst of fairly heavy
snowfall is possible in east-central Wisconsin during the pre-dawn
hours. Road pavement temperatures should be well above
freezing... so it is unlikely that the snow will accumulate on the
roads. But the combination of reduced visibility due to the
falling snow and increasing north winds could make for hazardous
travel conditions.

Anyone traveling this morning should use extra caution. Morning
commuters should allow for extra travel time to get to work this
morning.
