Lake effect snow warning issued

WEATHER-ALERT-logo-all-3-webThe National Weather Service has issued a lake effect snow warning for an area that includes all of Kenosha County.

The warning will be in effect until 1 p.m., Tuesday.

Lake effect snow could add 5 to 8 inches to earlier forecast amounts, the warning says. The snow will be dry inland and possibly wetter closer to Lake Michigan.

Regarding preparation, the NWS says:

A Lake Effect Snow Warning means significant amounts of lake effect snow are forecast that will make travel very hazardous or impossible. Lake effect snow showers typically align themselves in bands and will likely be intense enough to drop 1 to several inches of snow per hour for several hours. Visibilities vary greatly and can drop to zero within minutes. Travel is strongly discouraged. Commerce could be severely impacted. If you must travel…keep an extra flashlight…food…and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
