Winter storm warnings were issued by the National Weather Service for parts of northwest OH, southern Lower Michigan, northern IN, northern IL, southern Wisconsin and eastern Iowa, where show is expected to be the heaviest. This would mean 5 to 7 inches of snow in areas near the Wisconsin-Illinois border, 3 to 5 inches in the Madison area and 1 to 3 inches near Wisconsin Dells.
