Driving to Super Bowl? Avoid storm by leaving Wednesday

Jan. 31, 2011
 

If you're driving from Wisconsin to Texas for the Super Bowl, the National Weather Service advises that you not leave before Wednesday afternoon.

A winter storm was heading toward the nation's midsection Monday, threatening to bring sleet, ice and as much as two feet of snow.

The storm shouldn't affect the Green Bay Packers, whose flight was scheduled to leave Monday afternoon. The Green Bay area wasn't expected to see more than an inch of snow.

But conditions could be more treacherous from southern Wisconsin down to Oklahoma. The Milwaukee area could get up to 20 inches of snow by Wednesday morning.

National Weather Service meteorologist Roy Eckberg warns that even if Wisconsin conditions clear up early, conditions further south could be bad. He suggests waiting until later Wednesday.
