COPY-Winter Storm Warning: Snow and Ice Expected on Sunday

Eau Claire, WI (WQOW) - Dangerous travel conditions are possible on Sunday due to a combination of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and freezing drizzle.  The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for a large portion of the WQOW News 18 viewing area.

"The incoming weather system poses a number of challenges locally," said News 18 Meteorologist Nick Grunseth.  "By the time this system exits our area very early Monday morning, some locations may have picked up a few inches of snow, while other locations may have received little snow and more ice.  This is definitely a play-by-ear situation."

Grunseth says the precipitation will begin around noon on Sunday and last into the night.  Lingering activity is possible on Monday morning as the system pushes away from our area.  Overall totals of snow and ice will vary.

"At the moment, a trace to three inches of snow is a reasonable range, though some spots that stay colder have the potential of exceeding that range by an inch or two," he said.  "With the ice, we could pick up a trace to two tenths of an inch."
