It won't look like much, but snow is expected to fall throughout Friday and into Saturday, leaving some areas with as much as 5 inches. How much will Sussex get?
Southeastern Wisconsin will see what the National Weather Service calls a "prolonged period of snow" on Friday, tapering off early on Saturday, putting the area's northern half under a Winter Weather Advisory until 3 a.m. Saturday. Ozaukee, Washington and Fond du Lac counties are expected to see the most snowfall, with 2 to 4 inches forecast, while most others will pick up about 1 to 2 inches. The National Weather Service forecast for Sussex calls for less than half an inch of snow to fall — most likely between 4 and 5 a.m. Saturday. And there's a 50 percent chance of more snow during the day on Saturday. While not a full-frontal snow assault, the duration of the storm will make roads slick for much of the day, so exercise caution when …
