GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - With spring arriving Thursday, a brutal winter refuses to let go in much of northern Wisconsin.

As predicted, the far northwest part of the state got the brunt of a snowstorm that's supposed to drop another 1 to 3 inches Wednesday in many locations.

Seeley in Sawyer County, and Mellen in Ashland County, each had over seven inches and counting by mid-afternoon Tuesday. Ashland and Superior each had around four inches by early Tuesday evening -- less than predicted. Central Wisconsin had an inch-and-a-half or less.  

Wednesday, the snow line is supposed to drop further south. Places like Fond du Lac and Wisconsin Dells can expect a couple inches, and up to 3 more inches could fall in northeast Wisconsin.

Central areas expect another inch, along with much of the northwest. Freezing rain is also possible in some areas.

The Hudson region expects a total of 2 to 5 inches of snow from this storm.

It's all supposed to clear out later Wednesday -- and then dry and mild weather is in the offing for Thursday, before a new round of precipitation and colder temperatures come in for the weekend.
