Winter already terrible, will be getting worse
space
One of the coldest and snowy winters most Antigonians can remember just continues to get worse.

Despite mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine today, the fact is that hidden behind those nice conditions is tons of snow and plenty of cold.

Neal Wozniak, president of the Langlade County Fire Chiefs Association, is reminding people throughout the county to clear the area around their mailboxes, where many people have their addresses posted, so emergency responders — whether it be fire, EMS or law enforcement — the ability to locate them quickly.

“Make sure the numbers are visible,” Wozniak stressed.

And on a side note, he also asked residents to remember to check their home’s heating source, whether it be chimneys or furnaces, to ensure that the heavy snow is not keeping them from working properly.

A winter storm is moving across the way from Kansas bringing heavy snow, and then cold to most of Wisconsin, and certainly including Antigo and Langlade County. The National Weather Service said this morning that the storm may enter the warmer air now in the area with a mix of sleet and snow, and then shift to all snow later Thursday afternoon.

The snow will develop later in the afternoon and it can be heavy at times and pull out of the central Wisconsin area later in the night.

The line for heaviest snow runs from Merrill to Florence, which puts Langlade County on the south end of the target. But the lighter snow is still pretty heavy and around six inches, and depending on how the storm tracks, it can go to about 12 inches.

To make matters even worse, winds will kick up, too, with gust of 30 to 40 miles per hour.

The Weather Service said “driving conditions will become treacherous Thursday afternoon and night, so motorists should adjust travel plans.”
