SULLIVAN—The national Weather Service, Sullivan, has issued a winter storm watch for the Great Lakes Region, including Rock and Walworth counties and the cities of Janesville, Beloit, Elkhorn and Lake Geneva.
The warning remains in effect from Thursday morning through Thursday evening.
The snow will begin Thursday morning and diminish by Thursday evening.
Snow accumulations of 4 to 6 inches with locally higher amounts possible are predicted with wind gusts up to 35 mph possible.
Heavy snow would cause rapidly deteriorating travel conditions. Some thunder snow is possible and the strong northwest winds would cause considerable blowing and drifting snow with the potential for whiteout conditions.
A winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
