Rain, snow expected; Thursday morning commute could be impacted

Rain, snow, and a wintry mix will arrive later Wednesday evening across southeastern Wisconsin, starting after 8 p.m. across southern counties and closer to 10 p.m. farther north. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for parts of SE WI through midday Thursday.

Parts of Waukesha and Milwaukee County southward will primarily see rain and wintry mix, while areas northward see a heavy, wet snow. Highest snowfall totals are expected across Fond du Lac and Sheboygan counties.  

The wintry mess will continue through Thursday morning, creating soggy and slushy conditions.  Although the main wave of rain and snow will taper off mid-morning Thursday, a few more light rain and snow showers will be possible throughout the afternoon. No additional snowfall accumulation expected.
