Storm brings winter-like weather back

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - UPDATE - The snow storm moving through the area is leaving more than just white flakes on the ground.  Slippery roads have caused a number of accidents with vehicles sliding off into ditches and in one case, into the water.

This vehicle ended up in the water just off Highway 35 about a mile south of Stoddard shortly before noon Tuesday.  The driver of the car swerved to avoid a turning vehicle, slid off the road and into the water.  The three people in the car were taken to a La Crosse hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation reports that the main roads in the region have slippery stretches with some being snow covered, too.


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - - Parts of Wisconsin are expected to return to winter-like weather conditions with up to 10 inches of snow in the forecast Tuesday.

In the La Crosse area, News 19 Meteorologist Nick Grunseth says 4 to 7 inches of accumulation is possible.  Some localized spots may see eight inches.

Grunseth says the snowfall amounts will depend on the temperature.  Its possible that some areas could see a combination of snow and sleet. 

The National Weather Service issued a storm warning for portions of northeast and central Wisconsin through Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfall of 7 to 10 inches is expected in Wood, Portage and Shawano counties.

A winter weather advisory is posted for north central, west central and south central Wisconsin. The spring storm has shifted to the south on its way to Wisconsin, sparing the North Woods from the heaviest snow. Totals should range 2 to 4 inches there.
