***Watch WISN 12 News this weekend for the latest weather information!***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! Another round of snow has come and gone. The light fluffy snow added up to about 1 to 3.5 inches across the area. While snow will be the focus through early this week, the much advertised arctic blast will dominate the headlines later in the week.
Let’s start with a few snow totals from around the area. If you have a total to share please leave it in the comments section of the blog or on our Facebook page at WeatherWatch 12.
Here are the totals from Friday Night…
- Jackson 3.8″
- Beaver Dam 3.2″
- Random Lake & Sheboygan 3.0″
- Cedarburg 3.0″
- Oak Creek 2.0″
- Reeseville 2.0″
- Milwaukee – Mitchell 1.8″
- Kenosha 1.2″
Before the blast of cold arrives, another round of snow is likely. The light snow should sweep in on Monday. It has the potential to be the biggest snow so far this month in Milwaukee, and outside chance of the season too! Our in-house computer model puts down generally 2″-3″ across the area, with the lowest totals around Kenosha. An isolated spot or two could be near 4″ according to this model run. Just click to enlarge.
The Arctic Air Watch that I discussed in the blog over a week ago will likely need to be changed to a warning soon! The cold air is coming! By the middle of the week artic air will be spilling into our region. The biggest push of cold will likely hit from Thursday into Saturday. Below zero readings at LIKELY, even in Milwaukee.
As the cold begins to push in I think the first below zero morning in OVER 2 YEARS could occur this coming Friday. Here is a temperature forecast map from the 12Z GFS at 6am Friday. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Again I don’t expect the cold to linger too long, but anytime temperatures get as cold as we are forecasting, the cold can be dangerous.
For the latest on the frigid cold and potential snow, watch WISN 12 News at 5, 6, & 10pm!
Have a great day and make sure to share our blog with your family and friends!
