*Blowing/Drifting Snow Ending Tonight as Gusty Winds Slowly Diminish*

Strong southwest/west winds will continue through the evening hours across northeast Wisconsin as low pressure pulls away from the region. Gusts may exceed 30 mph at times this evening.  The gusty winds will also continue to create areas of blowing and drifting snow, especially across north-central Wisconsin.  This will reduce visibilities and lead to hazardous driving conditions, especially on north-south roads.
