NEW MUNSTER, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Wisconsin's first spring flood warnings have been issued in the southeast corner of the state -- while 400 miles away in the northwest, another big snowstorm is in the offing. The National Weather Service says 6-to-14 inches of snow are possible close to Lake Superior in Iron, Ashland, Bayfield, and Douglas counties. A winter storm warning is in effect there from midnight tonight until 6 am Wednesday.

Meanwhile, most of the snow is gone along the Fox River in Kenosha County -- except for the flood waters left behind. The Fox at New Munster was one-and-a-third feet above its flood stage at 11 last night.

The rest of Wisconsin is supposed to get mixed precipitation today and tomorrow. North central and far northeast Wisconsin can expect 1-to-3 inches of new snow today, and 4-to-6 more inches tomorrow. Central areas can expect lesser amounts of snow, with freezing rain thrown in. Only rain is forecast for much of southern Wisconsin.
