A familiar old saying: If you don’t like the weather in Wisconsin, wait 10 minutes.
Less than 48 hours since the warmest February day in recorded Northeast Wisconsin history, a winter weather advisory has been issued for the first half of Friday, Feb. 24, from midnight to noon.
The text of the advisory:
…Winter returns late tonight through Friday night…
.After a stretch of very mild temperatures this week, winter with all its impacts will return starting late tonight. A developing winter storm is expected to track over southern Wisconsin Friday before departing to the east late Friday night. The storm may produce a mixture of precipitation late tonight into Friday. The mix will turn to all snow later Friday into Friday night as blustery northeast winds bring in colder air.
There is still some uncertainty with snow amounts due to the mix potential. Nevertheless area roads will turn hazardous for the end of the work week …
* TIMING … Look for a mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain to work into the area overnight and then turn to mainly rain by noon Friday.
* SNOW ACCUMULATIONS/PRECIP TYPE … 1 to 3 inches of snow is possible along with up to a tenth of an inch of ice.
* MAIN IMPACT … Roads are expected to become hazardous for the morning commute.
