Winter storm warning for SE part of state canceled
Region could see an additional inch; blowing, drifting snow
A winter storm that brought heavy snow to parts of Wisconsin on a busy travel and shopping day is winding down.
The National Weather Service canceled the winter storm warning for southern Wisconsin Sunday. The main snowstorm area has shifted into central and northeastern Wisconsin.
Snow showers and flurries could develop Sunday afternoon, bringing up to an additional inch of accumulation in some areas.
In addition, brisk northerly winds may cause some blowing and drifting snow, especially in rural areas on east-west roads.
The National Weather Service said most locations around Green Bay, the Fox Valley, and Lake Michigan got 3 to 5 inches of snow. Milwaukee got about 9 inches while Manitowoc received 7 inches.
Winter storm warnings and advisories that covered much of Wisconsin earlier Sunday were down to primarily the Green Bay region around midway.
But the weather service said poor travel conditions are expected to continue into the afternoon for much of central and eastern Wisconsin, so travelers are urged to use caution or wait until roads improve.
Dozens of churches in southern Wisconsin canceled services Sunday.
