WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - Forecasters now say a major snowstorm should be limited to about the northern third of Wisconsin.

The National Weather Service has issued warnings and advisories from Wausau northward. Places along Lake Superior could be hit the hardest, with 8 to 12 inches in the forecast between now and Wednesday night. Other parts of the north and northwest can expect 3 to 6 inches.

In the northeast, freezing rain could be mixed in, with 2 to 4 inches of snow expected.

The Weather Service said a low pressure system that's building in the Plains brought up to four inches of snow Monday in parts of far northern Wisconsin -- and the same system can be blamed for the snow that's supposed to fall through Wednesday.

Phelps in Vilas County had just over four inches by Monday evening. Three inches fell at Lake Tomahawk.

In southern Wisconsin, rain is in the forecast Tuesday, possibly mixed with a little snow Wednesday. It's all supposed to clear out by Thursday.

A good share of this snow could melt by then, with warmer highs expected statewide in the 30's and 40's.
