MILWAUKEE - Winter weather is arriving in Wisconsin and it could affect your travel to the Packers game Sunday.

Packers fans we caught up with Saturday have a snow plan in place and some are even looking forward to it.

"I was hoping it wasn't going to happen yet."

But the first significant snow fall of the season won't stop Gary Anders from cheering on the Packers at Lambeau.

"I'm probably going to leave a 30 minutes to hour earlier just for safety as you may not be able to run at freeway speeds if the snow is coming down."

At his store, the Green and Gold Zone, chatter with customers centered on Sunday's sloppy conditions. Several inches are expected on the ground by the end of the Packers evening game.

"How about this one?" Justin Katsma questions looking for the perfect Packers stocking hat.

He spent the day wrangling the proper winter attire.

The game against the Lions will be Katsma's first at Lambeau and snow just seems fitting.

"It's finally the frozen tundra so it should be fun."

And he's determined to not let the snow hamper a good tailgate.

"I've got my propane heater packed."

Anders expects tailgaters may make some modifications.

"One might have to change the menu a little bit if it's going to be ill weather to something that might be less cooking and more pre-prepared."

However, both men are prepared to practice patience for what could be a long drive home, confident they'll make it though.

"The forecast is such that I don't think it will lock us in there," said Anders.

If you're headed to green bay or staying closer to home, you can stay on top of the weather conditions and the game by using the TMJ4 app.
