***Winter Weather Advisory in effect from Monday AM – Tuesday PM***
***Blizzard Watch in effect from Tuesday PM – Wednesday PM***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! A major winter storm will begin to impact our area on Monday. The snow will come in two waves, the first begins Monday morning.
Winter weather advisories are posted for southeast Wisconsin from Monday into Tuesday afternoon. The first round of snow should bring about 4″-8″ of snow! The higher totals will occur near Lake Michigan.
Here is how our in-house computer model, the RPM handles the snow from Monday through 8am Tuesday.
The main storm will move in our direction Tuesday Night into Wednesday. The track of the storm will continue to shift around some in the next 48 hours, but it is becoming clearer that some heavy snow will move into southern Wisconsin. The views from various models do differ on how much snow, so I thought I would post one of the higher forecast totals I’ve seen so far.
And again, make sure to watch WISN 12 News for our official forecast. Below is the RPM total snow forecast through Wednesday. I think this would be a storm that many would remember for years if it played out like this!
In combination with the snow, winds will gust to around or over 40mph! This will create blizzard conditions in some areas. If you have travel plans late Tuesday or Wednesday, you may want to consider make alternate plans to avoid the potentially dangerous travel conditions!
Look for another update in the blog after our 5:30 newscast!
Snow lovers…this may finally be your big storm!
