Winter is coming!

Well, it's already technically here, but it'll sure feel like it this weekend.

Storm Team 4 is tracking a winter storm that could dump six to 10 inches of snow in parts of southeastern Wisconsin Friday evening into Sunday.

The whole system starts on Friday when travel conditions are expected to get bad due to ice that is expected to accumulate. The further south you go, the more ice you will see. If you can avoid driving on Friday evening, do it.

There could be a couple of inches of snow on Friday night, but the time to keep an eye on is Saturday afternoon and evening. Near blizzard conditions are expected for Saturday.

Winds are expected to pick up Saturday morning and early afternoon before snow starts to come down Saturday afternoon and evening. Significant accumulation is predicted for areas of Wisconsin. The evening hours will see heavy snow and create traffic issues for anyone traveling during this time. The worst time to travel will be Saturday night.

The wind will remain and by Sunday morning, areas could possibly see anywhere from six to 10 inches total. With this storm, there will likely be snow-covered roads and blowing snow Sunday.
