As is pretty typical around here, another tough winter forecast. At this point the track of the low is farther west than yesterday. This would equate to less snow and mix and more cold rain. However, I’m still very concerned about Wednesday night-Thursday morning for the possibility of a large amount of freezing rain, especially in our northern and northwestern counties. These areas may stay below freezing longer creating hazardous conditions
Here is the latest computer model for Thursday afternoon/evening. The 540 thickness line is usually a decent indicator of the rain/snow line and it is in northern Wisconsin. The bulk of the precipitation we will get will be rain.
The snow will be heavy where it stays snow. The following map is a computer model depicting snowfall forecast through Thursday afternoon. The snow on the map in our area is actually from the light snow that we will get on Tuesday. This computer model brings us little to any snow on Wednesday-Thursday.
The computer model has some crazy totals in Nebraska and South Dakota, but safe to say where this storm stays all snow it will be well over a foot. Stay tuned. Thanks for reading.
