MILWAUKEE - Drivers beginning their morning commute on Tuesday found the going incredibly slow on area freeways and roads.

That is, if they could travel them safely.

"Be prepared for some very slow going," warned Storm Team 4Caster Scott Steele, who like most of us, traveled on slowy roads and freeways to get in.

Storm Team 4Caster Lance Hill experienced the same thing as he came into Radio City on Milwaukee's east side.

"You had completely snow covered roads.  At times you could barely seen the lane markers in between the lanes."

"Already plan at least double the amount of time."

More than 20 crashes happened in the city of Milwaukee before the Tuesday morning commute due to the weather.

"That's a little higher than our average, but we always want to remind people during these storms that people have crashes because they're simply driving to fast for conditions or following too closely," said Milwaukee Police Spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz.

"We do a lot more in the car than we used to."  "When we have a morning like this, people need to pay attention to the road and the road only."
