WAUSAU PILOT AND REVIEW
On the heels of an Arctic blast, a winter storm warning has been issued for Marathon County with up to a foot of snow expected by Monday afternoon.
A wind chill advisory is also in effect from 9 p.m. Saturday until noon on Sunday. Then, a winter storm warning will take effect at 6 p.m. Sunday and will continue until 6 p.m. Monday, according to the National Weather Service in Green Bay.
Heavy snow and very cold wind chills are expected, with snow accumulations between 6 and 12 inches before the storm passes. Wind chills as low as -30 degrees below zero are predicted for the area.
Patchy blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility and will impact the morning and evening commute on Monday, weather officials said.
A winter storm warning for snow means severe conditions will make travel very hazardous or even impossible. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, water, and blankets in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
