MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Most of Wisconsin is under a winter storm warning as a band of heavy snow hits the Badger State.
Strong winds are expected to whip up the snow and make travel difficult. The National Weather Service says near white-out conditions are possible in open areas through Wednesday morning.
Snow accumulations of 6 to 10 inches are forecast in northeastern Wisconsin by Tuesday evening, with up to 9 inches expected in central Wisconsin. Five to 7 inches of snow could accumulate in Black River Falls, Mauston and Neillsville.
Freedom Area and Seymour schools are among those closed Tuesday.
