We are only a few days into November and it has already been snowy. This is a little early, but not completely unusual to see snowfall this early in the season. It is still fall by both definitions, but it will continue to feel and look more winter like into the weekend.
The next round of winter weather will begin to impact us this evening. Through the afternoon clouds will be increasing and then a rain/snow mix will set up by dark. The precipitation will be falling mostly as snow in our northern counties leading to slippery road conditions and lower visibility into tonight.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Barron, Polk, Price, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor and Washburn counties valid from 6 PM tonight until 7 AM Saturday.
Total accumulation is expected to be in the 2-4" range in our northern counties under the advisory while areas around Eau Claire will see about an inch or less. Even lower totals around the Coulee Region where most of the precipitation will fall as rain.
