MADISON, Wis. -

A couple inches of light snow are expected to cause some travel delays in southern Wisconsin Friday.

Forecasters are calling for 1 to 4 inches of light snow to fall throughout the day. Slightly higher amounts are possible northeast of Madison and less snow is expected closer to the Illinois border.

Winds will be light, but roads might still be slippery and visibility might be reduced.

At 7 a.m. traffic issues were reported on Interstate 39/90 north of Madison. At 7:45 a.m. a rollover crash with injuries was reported in Columbia County just north of the Wisconsin River bridge.

Snow is expected to taper to flurries Friday night and continue into Saturday with little additional accumulation.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 3 a.m. Saturday for Marquette, Green Lake and Dodge counties.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
