Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog. Several of you have posted snow totals today and we want to say thank you! If you have a total please post to the comments section of the blog and we will do our best to use you total on WISN 12 News!
Here is an update on the snow and what is still ahead for this evening and tonight. Winds will gradually switch to a northeast direction and northerly direction overnight. The map below is from our in-house high resolution computer model…the RPM. It continues to indicate that at 7pm this evening a northeast to north wind will continue to push lake effect snow bands across Sheboygan, Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha Counties. Inland areas will still see some light snow, but the heaviest bands will reside closer to Lake Michigan.
The heavier lake effect snow bands appear as green on the radar. This image was taken shortly after 2pm. More of these heavier bands will rotate in off from Lake Michigan later in the afternoon and early this evening. Along with the snow, winds will increase and gust to over 30mph this evening and tonight causing blowing and drifting snow.
Here are some of the snow totals as of 2pm:
- Brookfield 7.0″
- Plymouth 6.6″
- Franksville 6.5″
- Pewaukee 6.0″
- Waukesha 6.0″
- Jackson 6.0″
- Hartland 5.0″
- Sheboygan 5.0″
- West Allis 4.8″
