Wet, slushy roads to freeze up overnight as temps drop

and last updated 2022-02-22 23:29:09-05

This messy storm system did exactly what it was forecasted to do with a little bit of everything which included enough ice overnight to make things very slick. We got the late morning sleet that helped make things slushy and less slick, and now we are seeing the last round of precip leaving the area. The wintry mix is coming to an end, but the risk of slipping and sliding is not over. Roads that were just wet and slushy today will now freeze up tonight as temps are already dropping into the 20s and eventually the single digits by morning. Wind chills could be - to -10. Wednesday starts out sunny, but clouds increase late in the day with highs only in the low 20s and wind chills in the single digits.

Wednesday night will bring a little bit of lake effect snow...maybe 1". Flurries could linger into Thursday morning and afternoon highs stay in the mid 20s. By evening, snow showers move into SE Wisconsin and will continue into early Friday. This could be our biggest snowfall of the season so far with 2-4" of fresh powder. The sun returns Friday afternoon with highs in the mid 20s, and we could get into the mid 30s on Saturday with a gusty SW wind.
