WISCONSIN — The weather is looking good.
The snow hasn’t been nearly as hard.
And the snow isn’t going away.
In Wisconsin, the forecast calls for a nice mix of snow and sleet, but there are a few things that are looking like they could put some life into the Wisconsin roads for the start of the All Star break.
We’re getting close to the snow.
With a chance to get into the snow, drivers will be getting more of a chance at navigating the icy terrain, which will create some new challenges for drivers.
But it won’t be all that bad.
It will be just fine, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
Snow conditions are forecast to be in the 50 to 65 mph range for most of the state, but in a few spots the snow may get even higher, the department said.
The snow is coming down pretty steadily in Wisconsin and will be manageable for most people, said Tom Dolan, the director of Wisconsin roads.
The snow will start to melt in the coming days and will stay on the ground for the rest of the break.
That is good news for motorists who need to go on road trips in winter, but it could also be an inconvenience for those who are traveling in wintertime and need to get to work.
The Wisconsin Department also warned drivers to be prepared to take shortcuts to get through snowy conditions.
Dolan said the department is encouraging drivers to take extra care when crossing roads and to stay on sidewalks or at least stay in front of parked vehicles.
“Stay safe and stay out of the snow,” he said.
“Stay in your lane.
Don’t try to pull through snow.”
Dolan also encouraged drivers to wear reflective clothing.
He said the best advice is to wear a hat or jacket to keep snow off of your eyes and ears.
And don’t leave your vehicle on the icy roadways.
Drivers can also expect to see a significant decrease in the number of traffic fatalities during the break, Dolan said.
According to the state Department of Natural Resources, there were 2,716 deaths in Wisconsin during the first six months of the year, the lowest number in nearly two decades.
In other news, there is a possibility that the weather will continue to warm up during the Allstar break, according a state official.
That could mean a bit of sleet or snow could continue to fall in the Wisconsin mountains, but the weather could be warmer and drier than normal by the time the All Stars return to Wisconsin, according the state official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
