A messy winter storm remains on track to impact the La Crosse area later Tuesday into Wednesday, with accumulating snow across north-central Iowa into southeast Minnesota and north-central Wisconsin, while a mix of rain and snow, or even just a cold rain, fall farther south.
Where precipitation remains all snow, amounts of 6 inches or more are expected, with hazardous travel likely.
In addition to the snow, gusty winds of 30 to 40 mph from the northwest are expected Wednesday, which could lead to some drifting snow.
The National Weather Service office in La Crosse warns travelers to pay attention to the latest forecasts as it is possible the area of heaviest snow could still shift slightly.
Wednesday traditionally is the busiest travel day of the year, with millions of Americans driving and flying to celebrate Thanksgiving.
