The Upper Midwest snowstorm will allow Green Bay's Lambeau Field to live up to its nickname as the Frozen Tundra this evening.

Temperatures will hover in the lower 30s, and snow will fall steadily through this evening, before ending around midnight. A total of 2-4 inches is expected.

You will definitely want to plan for slow travel and slippery roadways if you are heading to the game or to any other outings this evening.

Be sure to dress warmly and have an extra shovel or some kitty litter for traction in your car in case you get stuck.

While the snow will be gone by the Monday morning commute, temperatures will be cold and untreated roads will still be slippery.
