Winter storm warning issued

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for an area of Wisconsin including Kenosha County.

The warning is a long one, in effect from 8 p.m. Sunday through noon Tuesday.

The warning cites accumulation totals of 6-9 inches, but more localized forecasts for Western Kenosha County locations call for 2-8 inches.

Anticipated lake effect snow prompted the upgrade to winter storm warning, says a statement from the NWS Sullivan office. All of the counties in Wisconsin that now have a storm warning border Lake Michigan (including Racine, Milwaukee and Washington counties). Inland counties continue with a winter weather advisory.

If you venture out to shovel Monday morning, bear in mind that temperatures are expected to be the high teens.

Illinois counties — including Lake and Cook counties — are under winter weather advisories.

UPDATE about 7:25 p.m. — Snow falling in Paddock Lake.
