Our busy January continues. More snow tonight than last night, but not a big storm by any stretch. Here is what I expect to fall tonight.
Here is the radar from 7:30 pm:
12 of 14 days this January have had at least a trace of snow, but that has only added up to 4.3″ for the month. That is 2.7 inches below average. For the season, Milwaukee has only received 12.6″ of snow. This is 10.2″ behind average. Lots of little snows, but no big snows for Milwaukee so far. There is a chance for heavier snow on Monday. It is too early to tell just how much, but I expect more than the 1″-2″ snows we have seen lately. The GFS kicks up about .50″ of measurable precipitation for Monday. Not a huge storm, but you snow lovers may have something to get a little excited about.
The white represents -20 degree temperatures. This cold air has been sitting there for a while and I have been burned a few times in the last two weeks thinking we were going to tap this cold air and bring it into Wisconsin. It does look like we will get pieces of this starting on Tuesday. Even colder air is possible on Thursday and Friday. If we get the brunt of the cold our highs could be as low as the single digits and we could get our first below zero readings in Milwaukee since January 17th, 2009. We had no below zero temperatures in 2010. The more snow we get on the ground, the more likely we will go below zero next week.
Have a great weekend.
