A major winter storm is moving through the region this morning and motorists are urged to be prepared for hazardous driving conditions.  

Winter weather advisories and warnings are in effect throughout Northwest Wisconsin, and road conditions vary across the region.  Although some areas will only see a few inches of snow, counties included in the Winter Storm Warning could see up to a foot of snow.  

You can check road conditions before you travel today by going online to 511wi.gov for up-to-the minute road condition reports.  

Be sure to pack an auto emergency kit in your vehicle. 

Forecasters say the heavy snow in some areas, combined with gusty winds, could reduce visibility and make driving hazardous.
