Let it Snow!
Forecast Updated at 11:00 PM Saturday
The forecast should remain quiet and cloudy through the morning with possible fog and freezing drizzle. The drizzle we see tomorrow will turn to snowfall by early afternoon, ahead of overspreading milder air working ahead of a storm system brewing to our south and west. It looks like parts of northern and central Wisconsin will see snowfall amounts from about 1" to slightly more than 2" in spots by Monday morning. Don't think that we're done with the snowfall by Monday afternoon though, we're just getting started with the winter weather! The storm system will begin to impact us head on by Monday afternoon, producing the heaviest amounts of snow into the evening and overnight into Tuesday.
For now it looks like models are painting about 2-4" of snow during throughout Monday afternoon and evening, but periods of sleet could eat into those snow totals. Wrap-around moisture from the storm will put light snow into the forecast through Tuesday and into Wednesday. Winds mixing down from the backside of the storm will be very gusty by Christmas Eve and into Christmas Day. Perhaps Santa should hitch a ride on the jetstream.
Be Careful on the Roads!
