Another Reminder That It's Winter

Wisconsinites will get another reminder today (Wednesday) that it's still winter.

The National Weather Service has issued advisories until six p-m for the central and northeast parts of the state, where 3-5 inches of snow are in the forecast. Two-to-four inches are possible in east central Wisconsin, north of Madison and Milwaukee -- the south could get 1-4 inches -- and gusty winds of up to 30 miles per hour could cause drifting in much of the state. The far north could get another 1-3 inches, after Washburn in Bayfield County got six inches of snow Tuesday while Ashland had five -- and hail of up to one inch fell in parts of southern Wisconsin. Flood warnings remain in effect on the Wolf River at Shiocton (shy ock'ton), where it's about four inches above its banks -- and the Mississippi River near Prairie du Chien expects minor flooding beginning Thursday.
