But Racine County could see up to three inches of snow before midnight. Chance of precipitation is 20 percent. The ice and snow will continue in upstate NY, western Pennsylvania and into New England. The high will be near 23 degrees. Extremely high winds (gusts up to 60 mpg) paired with the freezing rain and snow to fall will lead to especially unsafe driving conditions.
