After a mild day on Sunday with highs in the lower 40s, the first accumulating snow of the season is likely on the way for late Sunday night into Monday. This could cause a few headaches with rush hour slow downs as snow is anticipated between 6am and 9am.
Low pressure is expected to move across Illinois late Sunday night and then intensify as it heads into Michigan on Monday. Rain or snow is possible over southern Wisconsin Sunday night, changing over to all snow later Sunday night as colder air moves into the area on brisk northwest winds.
For now, accumulations look to remain under 3″… certainly not a big storm. But as we saw last Monday (Nov. 17th) it took only a tenth of an inch to create skating rinks out of local roadways.
If we don’t get our first official inch of snow Monday in Milwaukee… any guesses when it will actually happen? For the record, a friend asked me that question about six weeks ago. I threw out November 25th. Not bad for a guess:-)
