More snow to affect morning commutes in southern Wisconsin

For the third time in a little more than a week, significant snowfall is expected to affect the morning commute.

Snow totals will vary based on location, with more snow falling to the north of Madison, but a total of 1 to 6 inches of snow is expected before it stops falling by the end of the day.

Snow started falling overnight and is already covering some Madison area roads as of 5 a.m. Conditions are expected to stay slippery as more cars head out onto the roads for the morning commute.

A look at University Ave this morning: About an inch on the road right now. Remember, 4x the number of accidents happen in 1-2 inches of snow than when there’s 2-6. #News3NowThisMorning @WISCTV_News3
