Expect hazardous conditions on the roads throughout the night as the mixed bag of precipitation continues. Snow remains the main precipitation type north of Milwaukee. Areas along the I-94 corridor with experience a mix of sleet and snow. Areas farther south will see the freezing rain and sleet combination continue.

SkyVision Plus shows the precipitation winding down overnight. We could see a light mix on Thursday morning with a few slick spots. However, it is possible the warnings that are currently in effect get downgraded as conditions are forecast to improve.
