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.
MINOCQUA - These plants may look pretty but they're taking over our rivers and lakes. Michele Sadauskas is Oneida County's Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator. She is working to map and control the yellow iris, the plant you see here. She and two other conservation workers spent the day weeding Stacks Bay.
"They invade our wetlands. They're a really robust, aggressive plant. What they do is they crowd out our native species and make actually the wetland a lot less diverse," says Michele Sadauskas, Oneida County AIS Coordinator.
Removing yellow iris is a slow process. It takes three hours of work just to properly map and control 20 feet of shoreline.
