Heavy rain will turn to snowfall in much of the state this evening and into Wednesday. 

Election day, the first Milwaukee Brewers home game, and a campaign visit from former President Donald Trump could all be impacted by the messy weather. 

In Milwaukee, the National Weather Service predicts light accumulations of snow Tuesday evening and a little more overnight.

Green Bay, site of the Trump rally, could get more than a foot. 

Roy Eckberg, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Green Bay, predicted eight to 14 inches of snow in the Fox Valley. 

“Also, the strong winds and heavy wet snow could combine to cause some minor tree damage and maybe sporadic power outages,” he said. 

Increasing northeast to north winds at 15 to 30 miles an hour with gusts up to 45 miles per hour will create very difficult travel conditions, especially Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, he said. 

Travelers across northern Wisconsin should be alert for rapidly deteriorating road conditions, said meteorologist Andy Boxell. 

“Snow will continue really from much of the day on Wednesday and even into Wednesday night, albeit in a much lighter fashion,” Boxell said. “It’s really the evening and overnight hours tonight when the heaviest accumulations are expected.”
