Wisconsin is bracing itself for heavy, wet snow as a winter storm warning goes into effect at 4:00 a.m.
for much of the viewing area.
The snow is expected to arrive well after midnight tonight and is likely to mix with rain initially.
The heaviest snow and worst conditions are expected on Saturday morning, with lighter snow lingering into early Saturday afternoon.
Winter storm warnings are in effect for Waukesha County, Milwaukee, Walworth, Racine, and Kenosha counties from 4 a.m.
late tonight into 1 p.m.
tomorrow afternoon, while winter weather advisories are in place for Northwestern spots.
Temperatures are currently above freezing, and the ground is thawing out, which could create very wet, heavy snow.
The area is expected to receive five to seven inches of snow, with a potential for even more in some areas if intense snow rates occur.
The snow is expected to end by tomorrow afternoon, and Sunday is predicted to be dry, albeit with a chance of snow showers in the evening.
