An ugly storm system is going to come in two waves this weekend with the first round of wintry mix overnight, and then the second more potent round tomorrow afternoon through Sunday.
Winter weather advisories are issued for all counties along and south of Highway 29 through tomorrow afternoon for a wintry mix of snow up to an inch and a half and a light glaze of ice as temperature hover around 32 degrees.
Winds will not be as bad as they will be later tomorrow, east around 5 to 15 mph.
Temperatures will climb into the lower to mid 30s tomorrow especially south of Highway 29.
In the Northwoods, light to moderate snow will be the primary threat.
Winter storm warnings are in effect for areas along and north of Highway 29.
Any small shift in the track of the low pressure will be the difference between someone seeing 4-8 inches of snow and seeing 1-3 inches of snow.
Winds will gust 30-40 mph out of the east and northeast.
Because of the strong winds, a lakeshore flood warning is in effect for all lakeside counties.
Flooding and erosion will once again be issues from Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.
Moderate to heavy snow at times will occur Saturday night into Sunday morning.
The highest snowfall accumulations will occur along and north of Highway 29.
Some locations may see near a foot of snow by the time the system winds down.
Temperatures Sunday will be right around 32-33 with gusty winds between 30-40 mph out of the north and northeast.
Northwoods areas will pick up 9-12 inches of snow, Highway 29 corridor will pick up 6-9 inches.
From Highway 29 to Highway 10, 3-6 inches of snow will fall, and south of Highway 10, around 1-3 inches of total accumulated snow with some melting can be expected.
A few flurries or a passing snow shower will linger into our Monday morning but skies will turn partly cloudy by the afternoon.
