NEW ALERT: Snow makes roadways troublesome
A new coating of snow has created slick driving conditions throughout western Wisconsin.
A number of cars were reported in ditches along Interstate 94 and surrounding roads. No serious injuries have been reported as of yet, but towing companies are being kept busy by emergency calls.
Only and inch or two of snow is expected today, but reports are that slick spots have developed on area roads. Some of the back roads are particularly bad.
The snow will likely end soon. Then bitter cold will follow.
