Happy Holidays and Upcoming Winter Yuck for early Friday morning.... updated Christmas Day..,.

Most of the area picked up another 2" to 4" of snowfall through mid-day, as yet another storm system hits part of Wisconsin. Heaviest snow totals were from Clark County eastward through to Lake Michigan where several reports of 3" to 5" of snow fell. Overall, we'll get a small break for tonight before our next messy system comes up for early Friday morning.

It seems like most of December has either been rather cold, or rather active with storm systems rolling through from time to time... just about every 2nd or 3rd day... and this week will again, be no exception to that.

More YUCK comes up for the overnight period into Friday with a winter mess coming up from the south. Bottom line is, this system will have a little bit of everything and it will be really dependent on where you live as to what kind of mess you're going to see.

Here's my breakdown of what is coming up early Friday morning ....

Phillips- Snow through mid-morning, a period of freezing rain mixed with light snow for the rest of the morning and afternoon.   Around 3.5 inches of snow through the morning.

Rhinelander- Snow through mid-morning, with freezing drizzle and sleet mixed from late morning into the afternoon.  Around 4.0 inches of snow through the morning.

Antigo- Snow through mid-morning, with freezing drizzle, drizzle, sleet and snow mixed from late-morning into the afternoon.   4.0 inches of snow through the morning.

Wausau- Heavy snow through early morning, then a mixed of freezing rain and drizzle, sleet and light snow from early morning until early afternoon. Becoming mainly rain for the late afternoon.  3.5 inches of snow expected. 

Stevens Point- Heavy snow through early morning, then mixed with freezing rain, drizzle and sleet for a few hours in the morning before becoming mainly all light rain by early afternoon.   3.0 inches of snow expected.

Wisconsin Rapids- Heavy snow through early morning, then a mix of freezing rain, drizzle and sleet for a few hours before becoming light rain.  2.5 inches of snow expected.

Adams-Friendship- Snow for a few hours early, freezing rain and sleet from early morning until mid-morning... becoming mainly light rain thereafter. About 2.0 inches of snow expected.

As you may notice, there is a another HUMONGOUS difference across our viewing area from north to south... and while there are glaring differences as Friday rolls along... one thing seems certain... Friday morning's commute is going to be TREACHEROUS!

This forecast will bear some watching and we will continue to pass along updates throughout the next few days.
