A winter storm warning for heavy snow in southeastern Wisconsin along Lake Michigan has been extended until 3 p.m. on Tuesday, the National Weather Service said.
By sunrise on Tuesday, up to 11 inches of lake-effect snow had fallen in parts in Milwaukee County.
Just before 10:40 a.m., the weather service extended the winter storm warning until 3 p.m. for Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha counties. The warning had been set to expire at noon.
Another 1 to 3 inches of snow is forecast.
The latest storm to batter the area added to the pile, now a grand total of 22 inches of snow sitting at Mitchell International Airport — the deepest snow depth recorded in Milwaukee since January 2001.
