Kewaunee County is located smack dab in the middle of a winter storm warning area the National Weather Service office in Green Bay has issued for Northeast Wisconsin.

The warning was declared just after 4 a.m. and is effective from 9 a.m. Tuesday (Jan. 22) through noon Wednesday (Jan. 23):

A low pressure system traveling from Oklahoma towards Chicago will bring snow to northern Wisconsin for much of the area Tuesday, heaviest across east central and northeast Wisconsin. The snow will continue into Wednesday morning and will be light at times and heavier at others; however, the two heaviest time periods are expected to be this afternoon and evening and again Wednesday morning. The axis of heaviest snow has shifted to central and east central Wisconsin. Along with the heavier snowfall totals, winds will become gusty late tonight into Wednesday morning, leading to blowing and drifting snow across northeast Wisconsin.
