Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! Another round of light snow swept across southeastern Wisconsin on Wednesday. Like so many other snows this winter, it amounted to very little in Milwaukee. Here is a list of snow totals through 9pm. If you have a total to share, just post it to the comments section.
- Greenfield 0.75″
- Sullivan 0.7″
- West Allis 0.7″
- WISN 12 0.7″
- Hartford 0.5″
- Ripon 0.5″
- Milwaukee – Mitchell 0.4″
- Brown Deer 0.4″
- Kenosha 0.3″
The ‘dusting’ of snow in Milwaukee upped our season snow total to 9.0″. This total is 9.3″ below average! There certainly is a good reason for snow lovers to be upset this winter. I certainly thought back in November that we would have a higher snow total than this right now, but don’t give up hope, there is a 2-3 week ‘active’ part of the pattern that should come back later this month.
Along with a more active pattern, colder air will hit the area at times, and if the wind turns northeast for any amount of time some lake effect snow will also be possible. It’s only early January, and we have nearly 3 full months of winter left!
With the snow headed out, a shot of cold will arrive by Friday. Right now highs look like they will remain in the teens on Friday. Below is a temperature forecast for late Friday. This forecast is from the GFS computer model. I labeled Milwaukee with an ‘*’ and also labeled the bands of teens with a ’10s’.
Once the cold arrives it looks like highs will stay in the teens to low to mid 20s for an extended period.
Finally, I one more picture to share from my trip to the Rose Bowl. After the game as soon as I walked out of the stadium someone was walking around selling Wisconsin Rose Bowl Champion shirts for $5. I couldn’t resist and bought one for laughs. It made it even better that it just says ‘Badger’.

Have a great day!
