Dense freezing fog may create icy spots on roads tonight into Sunday

Final snow totals from Friday show most of the area picked up between 2-5" of snow.

That snow band really overachieved north and west of Milwaukee, which is where the highest snow totals were. West Bend nearly picked up 6" of new snow!

We haven't had any snow today, but we've been stuck under the low clouds and mist. While visibilities have been in the 3-6 mile range for much of the day, dense fog is expected to develop this evening and stick around through Sunday morning, especially away from the lake.

In addition to visibilities under a quarter mile, temperatures will be in the 20s so freezing fog is likely and will create icy spots on any untreated roads. A Dense Fog Advisory will go into effect at 6pm this evening and run through noon Sunday for all counties away from the lake. 

A system will also pass us by to the south overnight into early Sunday morning. While a majority of the precip will miss us to the south, we can't rule out some freezing drizzle or very light snow clipping Kenosha county. This could also cause patchy slippery spots.

The fog should lift Sunday afternoon with a peek or two of sun possible. Download the CBS 58 Ready Weather App to track the freezing fog and road conditions.
