GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Winter weather advisories are in effect in 17 Wisconsin counties from Tuesday evening through mid-day Wednesday.

All snow is predicted for Vilas and Oneida counties in north central Wisconsin. Two to six inches are in the forecast for the northwest, and 2 to 5 inches in north central areas.
Weather Service forecasters in Minneapolis say most of the snow will fall within 4 to 6 hours. It's expected to be a heavy, wet snow which may cause broken tree limbs and power outages.
Places outside the watch areas could get a rain and snow mix, or all rain Tuesday night.
