Winter Storm Watch – Snow Forecast

***Watch WISN 12 News today at 5, 6, & 10pm for the latest on the snow forecast!***

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog.  This is your home to Milwaukee’s most accurate weather information and only interactive weather blog.  If you have thoughts or questions about the upcoming storm please post them to the comments section.

Before we talk about the Sunday Night and Monday storm, let’s quickly touch on the light snow and flurries for today.  Light snow and flurries will fall on and off through this morning and into the afternoon.  Snow accumulations will range from a trace to maybe just under 1″.  Most areas will just see a dusting of snow though.  With air temperatures in the 30s, road surfaces will likely stay wet.

Now let’s talk about what everyone will be talking about by the end of the weekend, a potential snowstorm.

The National Weather Service has issued Winter Storm Watches for our entire viewing area EXCEPT Fond du Lac county that go into effect Sunday evening and continue thru Monday.

The exact track of the storm is not set in stone…but it does appear that accumulating snow will spread across Southeast Wisconsin Sunday Night and Monday.  One of our computer models is showing snow totals of about 3-6″ of snow.

Other models are close to this range…or even a bit higher in spots.   Another model that is close to the one above is the NAM.  This is the NAM forecast from the Saturday morning data.   The map below shows the total liquid precipitation.  The area that Milwaukee is in corresponds to 0.25″ to 0.50″.  In most cases this would be about 3-6″ of snow.

New data will arrive all day long and look for special graphics breaking down the expected snowfall amounts on WISN 12 News at 5, 6, & 10pm!

Have a great day and make sure to join our Facebook page WeatherWatch 12 for more updates and also follow us on Twitter!
