First significant snowfall of the winter season


by Becky Mortensen

STATEWIDE (AP) --- Residents across parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin are bracing for a snowstorm that could dump as much as 10 inches of snow in some areas.

The National Weather Service says a storm front was moving east from the Dakotas late Saturday.

Parts of southeast Minnesota could get 2 to 4 inches overnight, the Twin Cities could see 5 to 7 inches, and areas further north may see 6 to 8 inches.

The system is expected to pass through Minnesota overnight into Wisconsin. The weather service predicts 6 to 10 inches will fall in northwest Wisconsin on Sunday, with 6 to 7 inches in the north-central part of the state.

The Green Bay area could get about 3 inches and flakes could be seen flying during the Green Bay Packers-Detroit Lions game.

CBS 58's Michael Schlesigner says we can expecet up to 3 inches in the Milwaukee area before the weekend is over.

A wintery mix throughout the day made the roads a little slick. DOT cameras caught a few cars slipping and sliding, causing a few minor crashes on the highway.

There was light snow in both Dodge and Washington counties throughout the day.

The Milwaukee area can expect the wintery mix to turn to snow showers Sunday evening with one to three inches possible. The heavier snow is expected to be north and west of Milwaukee. The snow totals will be less south of the city.

Be sure to plan ahead for your morning commute as overnight snow conditions may cause some back-ups on the roads.
