Winter Weather Advisory 1-27-13Submitted: 01/27/2013

ACROSS THE NORTHWOODS - Snow continues tonight leading to a few more inches of snow in the Northwoods. Snow totals will be 2 to 5 inches from this storm tonight. A big concern is snow changing over to freezing rain tonight. This line of ice will work its way from south to north tonight before the system moves off to the east. Icing is possible as far north as Oneida and Forest counties so everyone should be careful.

Travel will be very difficult Monday morning. As the disturbance tries to move out, freezing drizzle and fog will be left behind. This only adds to issues of snow and ice covered roads for Monday morning's commute.

RHINELANDER - People in Rhinelander will see a change to severe weather alerts this summer.  Sirens will no longer go off for every Severe Thunderstorm Warning in place for Rhinelander. It's part of an effort to make sure sirens blare only during severe weather.

"It seems like when we set those sirens off, the storm would skirt to the north or south of Rhinelander, and people wonder 'Why did we even set the sirens off?'," said Rhinelander Fire Chief Terry Williams. "We've kind of got the 'Cry Wolf Syndrome' going, where when the sirens did go off, people really didn't pay too much attention to them."
