As snow emergencies are declared, TMJ4 News will update this article with the latest.

A Winter Weather Advisory was issued for Southeast Wisconsin beginning Saturday at 6 a.m. until 3 a.m. Sunday. Snow showers began to move into the Badger State Friday morning and have been the cause of several crashes and freeway closures.
