Winter storm expected this weekend

A major winter storm is expected this weekend that could impact travel in Door and Kewaunee counties.  According to the US National Weather Service in Green Bay, from late Friday until 6 pm Sunday anywhere from six to 12 inches of snow is possible.  The majority of the snowfall is to occur Saturday afternoon and into Sunday morning.  Holiday travelers should expect deteriorating weather that will result in snow-covered and slippery roads.  Winds may cause blowing and drifting snow as well.  You can find information on carrying a winter survival kit in case you get stranded with this story below.



Wisconsin DOT suggestions: 

A winter storm survival kit is extremely helpful should you become stranded. Consider keeping it in the back seat of your vehicle (in case your trunk jams or is frozen shut). Items to consider:

• Blankets or sleeping bags

• Extra stocking caps, warm socks, gloves/mittens

• Flashlight with extra batteries

• First-aid kit

• Booster cables and windshield brush/scraper

• Drinking water and high-calorie, non-perishable food (trail mix, energy/protein bars)

• Sand or cat litter for traction

• Cell phone adapter/charger
