1-3 Inches of Snow Possible Tonight
It won't look like much, but snow is expected to fall throughout Friday and into Saturday, leaving some areas with as much as 5 inches. How much will Waukesha get?
Waukesha could get 1 to 3 inches of snow – and freezing drizzle – tonight into early tomorrow morning.
Southeastern Wisconsin will see what the National Weather Service calls a "prolonged period of snow" on Friday, tapering off early on Saturday, putting the area's northern half under a Winter Weather Advisory until 3 a.m. Saturday.
Ozaukee, Washington and Fond du Lac counties are expected to see the most snowfall, with 3 to 5 inches forecast, while most others will pick up about 1 to 3 inches, including Waukesha. Lakeshore counties of Milwaukee and Racine may get a little help from the lake effect, giving them 2 to 4 inches.
While not a full-frontal snow assault, the duration of the storm will make roads slick for much of the day, so exercise caution when driving, including keeping your headlights on and allowing for greater following distances with the vehicles in front of you.
