UPDATE: Snow to come later with strong wind; winter storm warning shifts later

The National Weather Service winter storm warning in effect for Kenosha County for Sunday has moved later.

The warning is now in effect from 3 p.m., Sunday to 9 a.m. Monday.

The snow accumulation forecast for our area is 7 to 9 inches during the warning period.

The latest NWS forecast is also calling for strong wind. Sunday afternoon winds could be 15 to 20 mph with gusts as high as 20. That could be even worse Sunday night with winds 20 to 25 mph with gusts as high as 40 mph.

If all of those conditions come together travel will be “very hazardous or impossible” says the NWS.

Western Kenosha County is in the band expected by NWS to receive the most snow, more than even far east Kenosha County.

After the storm, we are in for some cold weather, with high temperatures in the 20s until Thursday, when we should crack 30.

UPDATE 3 p.m. — Blizzard warning now issued for Kenosha County.
