(FOX 47) -- A major storm system affecting the entire region is beginning to spread some snow across our local area today. 

Look for periods of light snow through the day with 2 to 4 inches of snowfall accumulation by early evening. 

Winds will be a little brisk later in the day, but the bulk of the drifting and low visibility concerns will be after sunset through the overnight period when north wind gusts will reach 40 miles per hour. 

The Blizzard Warning takes effect at noon today with the worst travel conditions lying ahead of us tonight and early tomorrow when drifting will be a major problem.

Snow will fall most heavily tonight when up to 6 inches will drop on the area followed by another inch or two tomorrow morning and early afternoon giving us totals of up to 12 inches in the viewing area. 

A couple of spots could conceivably pick up 14 inches from this storm in parts of northeastern Iowa and far southwestern Wisconsin.
