SHEBOYGAN COUNTY -- Sheboygan County was under a Winter Storm Warning as of 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 23rd and that warning will remain in effect until 1:00 p.m. Thursday, March 24th. Rain, sleet and snow made for quite the mess in Sheboygan on Wednesday.

Even with slick roads, officials with the Sheboygan County Sheriff's Office told FOX6 News there had only been a handful of accidents reported Wednesday.

"Sloppy.  Very, very sloppy," Michelle Johnson said of the road conditions in Sheboygan.

The snow brought with it gusty winds, which made for reduced visibility in the area.

"It`s supposed to be picking up to 30 mph -- some gusts higher than that," Greg Schnell with the Sheboygan County Highway Department said.

Those with the Highway Department were gearing up for a long night.

"Right now we have 45 units on the road doing one-way plows," Schnell said.

Schnell said crews would likely stay out until 10:00 p.m. Wednesday, and they would be joined by 12 additional trucks into Thursday morning.

"The temperatures are on our side," Schnell said.

There was plenty of salt on hand in Sheboygan County, thanks to our mild winter.

Meanwhile, Sheboygan Area School District officials have cancelled classes for Thursday. Classes for students at Sheboygan's Lakeland College campus have also been cancelled for Thursday.

"It's ridiculous! Absolutely ridiculous! It's spring -- not winter," Johnson said.
