WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Another First Alert Weather Day has been issued for midday Tuesday as we’re expecting another round of accumulating snowfall. Accumulating snowfall is expected to move in from southwest to northeast across the region throughout the mid-afternoon hours Tuesday. Prepare for impactful travel conditions this evening as visibility becomes reduced while mixing with heavy snowfall.

Snowfall will arrive among North-Central Wisconsin by 1 PM Tuesday and will last until late tonight as the system exits to our NE. Weather conditions overnight into Wednesday morning will be quiet after the storm, but winds may blow and drift some snow at times.

A quick shot of cooler weather will push in for the middle and end of the last week of December, with the potential for another heavy snowfall arriving for the first day of the new year Saturday. This one could be a bit more “interesting” in regards to the amount of snowfall it may produce for the first weekend in 2022. Stay tuned!
