The Greendale School District has canceled school as a winter storm continued to move through the area Wednesday morning.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Milwaukee County that remains in effect until noon Wednesday. Patch's media partners at WISN 12 News say the higher totals will likely be over southern Milwaukee County and Racine and Kenosha counties.
By 9 a.m., 8.6 inches had been reported in Franklin and 7.1 inches at Mitchell International Airport.
Traffic is slow on the freeways this morning, with slippery stretches and snow making travel more difficult than usual. According to the Wisconsin DOT's traffic map, freeways throughout the Milwaukee area are slippery.
The map shows traffic speeds of varying from 30-55 mph between the Mitchell and Marquette interchanges on I-43/94. Traffic is moving between 45 mph and regular speeds on I-894. Traffic from the Marquette Interchange to the Zoo Interchange is moving slow in spots, at speeds between 30 and 45 mph, and at normal speeds in others.
Traffic on I-43 west of the Hale Interchange, and I-94 south of the Mitchell Interchange are generally moving at normal speeds.
In addition to Greendale public schools, Martin Luther High School also closed today.
