OUTAGAMIE COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - Outagamie County has canceled its tow ban as conditions improve after the morning snow.

The ban impacted I-41 and Highway 441. Tow bans are issued for vehicles that are not an immediate hazard.

Brown County had issued a tow ban Thursday but there was no update on if it was lifted.

It’s a First Alert Weather Day. The backside of the system will move through Thursday.

The commute will still be slow and slippery as the last snow line moves with many snow-packed streets. Road crews will have an easier time blowing the last round of snow as it’ll be light and scattered.

The final snowfall totals will be in the 4-to-8-inch range. Some areas southeast of Lake Winnebago might see a little less, while folks closer to the Upper Michigan border might exceed 8 inches.

The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works has been out since 3 a.m. to clear and salt arterial streets.

Other units started plowing residential streets around 7 a.m.

“DPW wishes to assure residents that all residential streets will be plowed today. However, some routes will be started later in the morning due to arterial street activity,” reads a statement from DPW. “Please drive safely, give plow units some space to work, and have a great day.”
