MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee area and far southern Wisconsin will be under a winter storm warning starting Saturday night, and the National Weather Service predicted as much as 10 inches of snow could fall in Kenosha County by early Monday.

Snow is forecast to begin falling late Saturday and continue falling all day Sunday. Lake-effect snow is expected to combine with a low pressure system from the south to drive up snowfall totals in far southeast Wisconsin. Milwaukee could see up to 9 inches.

“Heavy snow totals and greater blowing and drifting snow is expected for the counties bordering Illinois,” the National Weather Service said in an advisory. “This will be a rather long event … with snow falling for about 24 straight hours inland … and longer for the counties adjacent to Lake Michigan.”

Forecasters say winds from Lake Michigan could gust to over 30 mph, making travel dangerous on Sunday. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation urged motorists to use caution on the roads.

Super Bowl partygoers were being advised to plan ahead and monitor road conditions, according to a transportation department statement Saturday.

Other parts of the state, including Sheboygan, Dodge, Dane and Waukesha counties, will be under a winter weather advisory starting Saturday night. Snow accumulations in those areas could reach 4 to 7 inches.
