Northern Wisconsin:
A band of snow will drift slowly northward over northcentral and northeast Wisconsin this morning. Between 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation will be possible north of line from Wausau to Sturgeon Bay...and south of line form Minocqua to Wausaukee. Motorists should drive with caution this morning and allow extra driving distance.

Fox Cities:
A band of snow will drift slowly northward over east central Wisconsin this morning. Up to an inch of snow accumulation is expected. A little more snow accumulation is anticipated over northern Wisconsin. Motorists should drive with caution this morning and allow extra driving distance.

Southern Wisconsin:
Look for a broken band of light precipitation to exit northeast Sheboygan County between 745 am and 8 am. Though the precipitation is mainly drizzle and light rain...flurries and even some very light sleet may mix in at times...making Road conditions slippery in spots. Motorists are urged to remain alert to the potential for isolated slippery spots during the early morning commute. The remainder of southeast and south central Wisconsin will see mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the middle 30s through the early morning hours.

Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with clouds and scattered thick but lightly scattered snow showers across central and parts of northern Wisconsin and some partial clearing far southwest, temps are in the low to mid- 30s.

Synopsis: This morning's surface map is pretty much a mess. A stationary front over northern Wisconsin is developing the snow showers we're seeing across much of central and parts of northern Wisconsin this morning. However, the big story is a developing low pressure system in the southern Rocky Mountains. This thing's going to rev up and create more havoc for the Denver Airport before eventually winding up here, where rain and some snow can be expected at times this weekend.

Today: Scattered light snow showers, mostly north and central and mostly early in the day. 1" can be expected on grassy areas central with 1-2" possible north. Probably just mostly cloudy south. High of 38 central, mid- 30s north, and lower 40s south. Chance of snow 40% north, 100% central (it's already snowing here).

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, lows near 30.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy, mild and a little breezy with light rain showers or drizzle possible. Highs near 40 central, low to mid- 40s south. Chance of rain 40% central, 25% south.

This Weekend:
Saturday: Mostly cloudy and breezy with rain developing Saturday night southwest. Highs 40-45. Chance of rain Saturday night 40% south, 20% central.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy and windy with scattered rain showers changing over to light snow late. Highs 36-41. Chance of precip 60%.
New Year's Day: Mostly cloudy, breezy, a little colder, scattered light snow showers possible. Highs 32-37. Chance of snow 50%.

Today in Las Vegas, Nevada: Increasing sunshine; windy, highs mid- 50s.
Wind Advisory in effect until 8 PM PST this evening...
Strong north winds had developed across much of southeast
California early this morning and are expected to spread across
southern Nevada and down the Colorado River this morning.
Northerly winds sustained at 20 to 35 mph with gusts to 50 mph are
expected to persist throughout the day before tapering off later
this evening.

Today in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: Sunshine, highs lower 60s.

Today in League City and Pearland, Texas: Sunshine, breezy, highs upper 60s.

Today in Evansville, Indiana: Partly cloudy, warmer, highs mid- 50s.
