Rain Totals…Week Ahead

***Watch WISN 12 News for the most accurate forecast!***

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog!  The weekend was very mild across the area and also wet.  Highs topped out in the low 40s on Sunday, our warmest of the month.  Rain totals ranged from about 0.25″ to 0.50″ across our viewing area.

Here are some of the totals we received.  Remember, if you ever have a rain or snow total to post it to the comments section of our blog.  We love to share your totals in the blog and also on WISN 12 News.

  • Madison 0.52″
  • Sheboygan 0.46″
  • Greenfield 0.35″
  • Racine 0.29″
  • Milwaukee 0.26″

Those are actual toals out of a rain guage.  Now let’s look at the radar estimated totals from the NWS.  This shows generally 0.25″ to maybe some isolated pockets of 0.75″ in Ozaukee County. 

This storm will continue to impact the region on Monday with snow showers and flurries.  Right now it does not look like any snow accumulation for our area.  Highs should be in the 30s on Monday, and then Tuesday is a transitional day.  The transition being from a ‘milder’ air mass to a colder one, and it will also be a dry day.  Another storm will impact Southeast Wisconsin on Wednesday, this should bring some light snow to Milwaukee. 

The main energy with this storm should stay to the south, but enough will sneak in our area to give us a chance of seeing light snow.  Right now the accumulation looks to be on the light side.  Any snow that falls will be light and fluffy with cold temperatures in the 20s.

After this brief period of light snow sweeps through, we can expect the coldest tempeatures in a long time to invade southern Wisconsin.  By Thursday and Friday many areas will not even reach 20 degrees for a high!  This would be the coldest airmass since the first week of January when lows were in the single digits, and highs were in the teens to low 20s.  The cold airmass will put and end to nearly two weeks of above average high temperatures for Milwaukee!
