Ready for winter?
If you've been enjoying the unseasonably warm weather, batten down the hatches. Winter is ready to make a comeback in a big way.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Waukesha County for snow and blowing snow, in effect from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday.
Rain will likely change to snow between 6 and 9 a.m. Wednesday, according to the NWS. Snow will linger throughout the day, with the heaviest snowfall in late morning and early afternoon.
Accumulations of 3 to 6 inches of snow are expected.
Before the snow arrives, there is rain to contend with. The NWS is cautioning that heavy rain and ice jams could lead to flooding. The first round of showers and thundershowers came through last night, dropping one-half to an inch of rain. The second round is expected this afternoon through this evening, with an additional 1.5 inches of rain. Because the rain is falling on ground that is frozen and saturated, there is rapid runoff, the weather service noted.
Although larger rivers can absorb that rainfall, smaller rivers and streams could flood, possibly affecting some roads, and leading the NWS to issue a flood watch.
