Heavy snow is falling in areas of northwestern Wisconsin today.

The National Weather Service has issued a lake effect snow warning for Ashland and Iron counties until midnight. Storm snow totals of 7 to 10 inches are expected along the Gogebic Range from Mellen to Hurley. Snow showers and blowing snow will result in reduced visibilities of less than a quarter of a mile in areas, the NWS warns.

In Douglas and Bayfield counties, a lake effect snow advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. Between 3 and 6 inches of snow is expected across the area, with the heaviest snow forecast to fall between South Range and Poplar in Douglas County and stretching into the higher terrain of the Bayfield Peninsula.

Areas well inland from Lake Superior will likely receive an inch or two of snow.
