Freezing rain across the Lakeland area late last night and early this morning, Tuesday, Jan. 29, delayed the start of school for several area schools and forced the cancellation of classes for many schools located south of the Lakeland area. 

All sporting events that were scheduled to be held Tuesday night have also been cancelled.

In addition to the hazardous conditions brought about by the freezing rain overnight and into this morning, a dense fog has also developed across the area. The National Weather Service has issued a dense fog alert for the Lakeland area.

The police departments reported a number of incidents of vehicles sliding off roadways, but no serious accidents.

The most recent alert reads as follows:

A FLOW OF MILD AND MOIST AIR AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT WAS RESULTING IN AREAS OF DENSE FOG ACROSS THE REGION THIS MORNING. SEVERAL OBSERVATION SITES WERE REPORTING VISIBILITIES OF A QUARTER MILE OR LESS ACROSS CENTRAL AND NORTH CENTRAL WISCONSIN. VISIBILITIES AS LOW AS A TENTH OF A MILE HAVE BEEN REPORTED OVER PARTS OF CENTRAL WISCONSIN. SOME IMPROVEMENT IN VISIBILITY IS ANTICIPATED BY AROUND MIDDAY... AS THE COLD FRONT PUSHES THROUGH THE AREA.

THE COMBINATION OF POOR VISIBILITY IN FOG... AND ICY STRETCHES ON UNTREATED SECONDARY ROADS... WILL RESULT IN HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS THIS MORNING. IF YOU MUST DRIVE THIS MORNING... BE SURE TO LEAVE EARLY... DRIVE SLOWLY... KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE FROM OTHER VEHICLES... AND USE ONLY LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS.

In addition to all of these conditions, the National Weather Service has also projected snowfall for Wednesday, Jan. 30, with anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of the white stuff to fall in the area as temperatures continue to drop later this week. By Thursday and Friday, overnight temperatures are expected to be in the single digits, if not below zero, with daytime temperatures in the single digits.

Here is the forecast for Wednesday:
