Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 Blog! Heavy snow hit parts of the area Saturday evening, while rain drenched lakeshore locations around Milwaukee.
Colder air will spill into the region overnight meaning any areas seeing rain, will changeover to snow. The slow transition to snow in Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha counties will cut down on potential snow totals.
Here is the latest forecast, the one that was shown at 10pm.
Some areas will be higher or lower than this, but I am confident based on the trends throughout the night and what has already fallen that areas around Waukesha, Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha should stay in the 2 to 4 inch range. Totals nearing a foot of snow may appear in parts of Fond du Lac and Sheboygan counties!
Please post your snow totals to the comments section of the blog. Also send us your snow pictures!
I received the one below from Donnalynn in Campbellsport with 4″ of snow around 9pm Saturday.
The snow will blow around on Sunday as winds will gust to around 45 mph! Blowing snow will reduce visibilities throughout the day. Temperatures will also take a dive, falling into the teens by late afternoon. The DOT is encouraging everyone to stay home, as it will be difficult for road crews to keep up with the blowing snow. If you do travel, please use extreme caution and if traveling into western parts of the state check ahead, some roads were impassable Saturday evening.
Stay tuned to Weather Watch 12 for the latest!
