Accumulating snow looks likely during the morning hours Thursday. This will be the timeframe where we see light snow in the Wausau area. As temperatures warm above freezing point heading into the afternoon, the region could see a switch over to the a snow/rain mix. Travel conditions throughout Thursday will be messy south of Hyw 10..

Temperatures will cool back down below-freezing heading into Thursday night and early Friday morning. Another band of snow will move through, dropping another inch of snow during this time period.

Snow amounts will vary across North-Central Wisconsin. Higher amounts of snow to accumulate south of HWY 10, while a trace to an inch of snow to accumulate in Wausau, Stevens Point, and Marshfield. Regardless of the snow totals, you may need to shovel the driveway Thursday evening or Friday morning. This type of snow will be harder to shovel as it is heavy and wet. Make sure to take frequent breaks when shoveling.

The track still has time to shift either north or south over the next 15 hours. A northern track would push heavier amounts of snow over Central Wisconsin, while a southern track removes most winter system impacts.
