ALERT: Travel not advised on Wisconsin roadways
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) and the State Patrol are advising motorists not to travel on northwest Wisconsin highways the remainder of the day, unless absolutely necessary.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning in several counties until midnight. Heavy, wet snow is creating whiteout conditions in some areas, primarily to the west of Eau Claire. However, that snow is expected to move east and north the rest of the day.
