Winter doesn’t even come to end an officially until the middle of next week, so it should not be a big surprise that the National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Kewaunee County and points south from 10 p.m. Sunday through 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Low pressure tracking from the Northern Plains to the Ohio Valley is expected to bring 2 to 4 inches of snow to the most of the region tonight through Monday night. East to northeast winds will support lake enhancement along the Lake Michigan shoreline, which should increase accumulations to 4 to 7 inches of lake-effect snow over Kewaunee and Manitowoc counties. Hazardous travel conditions are expected.

The NWS alert predicts that snow will arrive from west to east this evening and continue through Monday night. The most lake enhancement is expected to occur Monday afternoon.

The snow-covered roads are expected to become hazardous, making the Monday morning and Monday afternoon commutes difficult. In addition, gusty northeast winds are expected to create blowing and drifting snow which will create rapidly changing visibilities.
