***Watch WISN 12 News Saturday morning from 5-9am for weather updates!***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 Blog. Our weather center is always getting new data, and after looking over the final run of information before the snow starts, I did one last tweak of the snowfall forecast.
Below is a snowfall forecast from our in-house high resolution computer model. The snow forecast map that I showed on WISN 12 News Friday at 10pm was very close to this. It now appears that any lake effect or enhanced snow in the northern lakeshore counties would be fairly minor, so totals in the northern part of our viewing area will likely be in the 0.5″ to 1.5″ range, with a general 2″ to 4″ band from Madison to Milwaukee and points south. Within that band, most areas will fall in the 2″ to 3″ range.
The big winners with this storm will be in southwest Wisconsin where 6″ to 8″ will pile up!
