Two rounds of wintry precipitation are expected across southern
Wisconsin tonight into Saturday.

The first round will be tonight into Friday morning, mainly north
of the Madison and Milwaukee areas. An area of precipitation will
push north into the area this evening, lingering later tonight
into Friday morning.

A mix of rain and snow is forecast this evening toward the
Wisconsin Dells, Montello, Fond Du Lac and Sheboygan areas. This
precipitation should transition to mainly freezing rain later
tonight into Friday morning, with some snow and sleet mixing in.

Snow amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible, along with icing of
0.05 inches up to 0.20 inches. This will cause slippery roads for
travelers for the Friday morning commute in this area. Mainly
rain is expected elsewhere.

The second round will be Friday night into Saturday, as colder
air moves into the area. Rain will mix with and change to snow
Friday evening, with the snow lingering into Saturday. 2 to 3
inches of snow accumulation is forecast toward Montello, Wisconsin
Dells and Mineral Point. Lower amounts are forecast to the
southeast of there. This will cause slippery roads during this
