Highway department preparing for holiday storms

Saying “I’ll be home for Christmas” may be more of a nightmare than a dream this weekend as the state prepares for a winter storm. Much of Wisconsin outside the northeastern corridor is already under a Winter Storm Warning from Thursday through Saturday morning. In addition to several inches of snow, wind gusts as high as 50 miles per hour could produce whiteout conditions in some cases. Door and Kewaunee counties are currently under a watch or a warning. Still, the National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for the region advising residents to be aware of the oncoming storm. Door County Highway Commissioner Thad Ash says that after snow plows came off the road Tuesday morning after the area received just over an inch of snow, they already started preparing for Thursday’s expected weather.

Ash says with the size of their crew that it will be all hands on deck all weekend long if the storm materializes. The winter weather will stick around even after the snow disappears as cold air is expected to settle into the area. Wind chills are predicted to be 10 to 20 degrees below zero.
