Snow Totals & Lots of Cold Ahead

***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 Blog.  The first winter storm of the season is winding down as of late Saturday afternoon.  A few flurries will sweep across the area tonight, but no additional accumulation is expected.

Snow totals ended up very close to the map that I showed Friday night on WISN 12 News at 10pm.  I posted our final snow forecast map in the blog right under this entry, so check it out and compare it to the totals you see here.  The totals below are from viewers and the National Weather Service.  Please post your totals to the comments section of the blog.

  • Milwaukee Mitchell Airport  3.6″
  • Kenosha  3.4″
  • Merton  3.2″
  • Palmyra  3.2″
  • Hartland  3.0″
  • Pewaukee  3.0″
  • Greenfield  3.0″
  • Juneau  3.0″
  • Racine  2.9″
  • Brookfield  2.6″
  • Cedarburg  2.5″
  • West Allis  2.5″
  • Hartford  2.0″
  • Lomira  1.0″
  • Sheboygan  0.1″

Not only are our viewers sending in snow totals, but also pictures!  The first picture below is from Franklin, where Cal made a Clay Matthews snowman!  Nice work!

The next picture comes from Hartland where snow totals were around 3″.  Some people call these ‘snow cakes’.


If you take any pictures in the snow over the weekend, please post them to the U-Local section of!

Finally, let’s look ahead to Sunday.  Colder air will drop into our area on gusty northwest winds.  This will mean daytime highs only in the mid 20s, with wind chill readings in the single digits to teens!  Dress very warm on Sunday if you are out enjoying the snow, or heading to Lambeau Field for the Packers-49ers game.

Below is the temperature forecast map at noon Saturday from the 12Z GFS forecast model.  Just click to enlarge.

Have a great day and watch WISN 12 News for the updates!
