Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Milwaukee Wisconsin - D. Kwas

The Na­tional Weather Ser­vice has is­sued a win­ter storm watch for Mon­day evening through late Tues­day in south and cen­tral Wis­con­sin.

To­tal snow ac­cu­mu­la­tion of 4 to 10 inches is ex­pected, with wind gusts as high as 30 mph, the weather ser­vice said Sun­day evening. Travel could be very dif­fi­cult dur­ing Tues­day morn­ing and evening com­mutes.

The high­est ac­cu­mu­la­tion of snow is ex­pected to occur north of I-94, with lesser amounts in the south­east. Winds are ex­pected to in­crease dur­ing the storm, cre­at­ing blow­ing snow. There is po­ten­tial for larger snow­fall close to Lake Michi­gan, es­pe­cially near Mil­wau­kee, which could see 5 to 10 inches.

Snow on Sun­day af­ter­noon caused a 40-ve­hi­cle pileup on I-94 near Osseo, shut­ting down the in­ter­state in both di­rec­tions, ac­cord­ing to WEAU-TV in Eau Claire.

The Wis­con­sin State Pa­trol was at the scene at mile marker 85 in Eau Claire County, the TV sta­tion said.

The ve­hi­cles in­cluded seven semis and 33 cars, with seven in­juries, in­clud­ing one life-threat­en­ing in­jury, the sta­tion re­ported.

On Mon­day, cloudy skies and a high of 30 are ex­pected as well as a 20 per­cent chance of snow. Mon­day night is ex­pected to bring a low of 29 and wind gusts up to 30 miles per hour as well as a 100 per­cent chance of 2 to 4 inches of ad­di­tional snow.

There is a 100 per­cent chance of snow Tues­day, with highs near 31 and 1 to 3 inches ex­pected. Tues­day night will turn blus­tery, with a low of 18 de­grees, with an­other half-inch of ac­cu­mu­la­tion and the like­li­hood of blow­ing and drift­ing snow.

On Wed­nes­day, the sky will be sunny with a high of 27 and a low of 19.
