We’re still tracking a serious winter storm through the rest of the week. It’s going to impact us over the next few days in TWO parts...

The first part of this winter storm is still expected to affect us Wednesday night through Thursday with accumulating snow and slippery travel. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory during this time... Most of northeast Wisconsin will get 3-7″ by sunset tomorrow with some areas in Door County possibly receiving more than 7″. Drivers should plan ahead and allow for extra travel time. Thursday’s severe weather outlook is MODERATE.

The second part of the winter storm impacts us through Friday and into early Saturday with more snow and high winds. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch during this time frame. This COULD become a blizzard warning for some of us, as northwest winds gusting around 50 mph may cause whiteout conditions. Travel might become impossible in open country, as the new fallen snow blows and drifts with visibility near zero. There may be several area-wide power outages through Friday night and Saturday. Friday’s severe weather outlook is HIGH.

As the winter storm moves away, we’ll have bitter cold air and harsh wind chills. Those “feel-like temperatures” will be in the teens and twenties below zero at times during the Christmas weekend.

Stay tuned to WBAY-TV both on-air and online as we follow this major winter storm heading into the holiday weekend!
