The first accumulating snow of the season is expected for much of central Wisconsin overnight, prompting the National Weather Service in Green Bay to issue a winter weather advisory for 24 counties including Marathon.

Snow will develop late this evening, though locations farther east will start with rain or a wintry mix before precipitation changes to all snow. Most locations should see an inch or two of accumulation, mainly in grassy areas. Though lesser totals are likely on paved surfaces, roads and sidewalks are expected to be slippery, according to weather officials.

The winter weather advisory is in effect from 10 p.m. Monday to 7 a.m. Tuesday, with slippery road conditions that could impact the morning commute.

Weather officials urge drivers to slow down and take extra time to reach their destinations on Tuesday, and use extra caution when driving. Obtain the latest road conditions by calling 511.
