Eau Claire, WI (WQOW) - Snow will continue to fall in the Chippewa Valley today, with the heaviest of the activity during the morning. In total, accumulations will range from 3 to 7 inches, the highest totals south of highway 29.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect through today for the entire WQOW viewing area. The advisory means snow will cause poor travel conditions, including slippery roads and lower visibilities.
News 18 Meteorologist Nick Grunseth says the storm system causing the snow will gradually weaken as it moves through the Great Lakes region. The weakening will cause the snow to become lighter and scattered by tonight. The system will still be close enough to bring a few snow showers through the area on Saturday, but Grunseth says little additional accumulation is expected.
The WQOW News 18 forecast team is also keeping their eyes on another system that could affect the Chippewa Valley Monday and Tuesday next week. While it is still too early to determine how much snow the area could receive, some forecast models suggest a few inches are possible.
