***Watch WISN 12 News from 5-9am Saturday morning for the latest on the weekend storm!***
Here is a quick upate on the weekend storm. The latest data(NAM & RPM) is trending a bit farther south, this means higher snow totals for our area. The map below is the snowfall forecast that I showed on WISN 12 News at 10pm Friday evening.
The lower totals closer to the lake Michigan shoreline in parts of Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha counties is due to the late changeover to snow on Saturday. The change to all snow may hold off until Saturday evening. Some higher totals than what are shown here may occur in far northern and western areas. For the latest updates stay with Weather Watch 12 and WISN 12 News.
Winter Storm Warnings are now in place for our entire viewing area. For Milwaukee the warning goes into effect at midnight and continues through Sunday.
Winds of 25-45mph will cause significant blowing and drifting snow on Sunday. Please use extreme caution if traveling!
