A winter storm watch has been issued from Saturday morning to Sunday evening in Columbia, Dodge, Sauk and Green Lake counties, with the biggest danger coming from accumulating ice on trees and power lines.

Rain and thunderstorms are predicted to begin in the Meridian region around 1 a.m. Saturday, with the worst of the storm passing through between 6 a.m. and midnight Saturday.
