Snow continued to fall throughout the northern half of the state Sunday afternoon as a large snow storm heads east, after it dumped more than a foot of snow in some areas overnight.

Douglas County in far northwestern Wisconsin saw the most snow with nearly 22 inches by 11 a.m. As the storm moved east it dumped more snow in the Door County area, which recorded 11 inches in the last 24 hours.

The storm, plus high winds, is expected to bring more snow and dangerous driving conditions to the eastern portion of the state Sunday night. 

The City of Oconto in northeastern Wisconsin closed several roads Sunday due to high winds and flooding and asked residents to limit their water intake because the local wastewater treatment plant was over capacity. 

Door County is expected to get another 4 to 6 inches of snow before midnight Sunday, with Green Bay expecting another 3 to 4 inches.
