CLEAR LAKE, Wis. -

Northwest Wisconsin is enjoying a bit of a weather reprieve, as forecasts of 12 inches of snow appear to have been overstated.

The National Weather Service says the snowstorm moving east from Minnesota took a northward turn Thursday, largely sparing the upper corner of Wisconsin. Meteorologist Bill Borghoff says areas of Polk and Burnett counties got 1 to 2 inches of snow, far less than expected.

He says more snow could fall Thursday afternoon, lifting totals to 5 to 6 inches. But that's still less than the 12 inches predicted.

Borghoff said there's an ice-storm warning from La Crosse to Eau Claire on Thursday. He said temperatures will warm to just above freezing, though, so the ice won't stay around for long.

He said more precipitation is expected Sunday.
