May snowstorm expected to blanket more of northwest Wisconsin

by

BAYFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - A big snowstorm will cover more of northwest Wisconsin than originally predicted.

Wednesday morning, the National Weather Service issued a new winter storm warning from 7 p.m. until 7 p.m. Thursday for Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland, Burnett, Washburn, and Sawyer counties. Six to 12 inches of snow are predicted.

Also, Price and Iron counties were put under a new winter storm watch, with at least 6 inches possible.

Earlier, six counties just to the south – between Ladysmith and Ellsworth – were warned to expect 6 to 9 inches of snow starting Wednesday afternoon. The Eau Claire region expects 3-6 inches.

The new snow in Iron County will come on top of widespread flooding. The Weather Service said at least one bridge was closed over the Montreal River, and sand-bagging operations were taking place Tuesday.

Elsewhere in the state, flood warnings continue on the Brule River in Iron, Forest, and Florence counties – the Menominee River at Marinette – the Fox River in Kenosha County – and the Rock River at 5 locations in Rock and Jefferson counties.
