***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! It is not often we get a storm system to produce snow totals ranging from 1″ to 12″+ in our area, but that is where we are headed by the time this ends late Monday.
For a current look at what type of precipitation is falling where you live, just click the link for the interactive radar below.
A messy mix of rain/freezing rain/sleet/snow will change over to all snow Sunday Night. The snow totals will continue to add up, here is a look at totals through 6pm Sunday. Thank you to everyone who sent totals! I’m trying to use some on WISN 12 News, and also here in the blog.
- Oostburg 10.0″
- Fond du Lac 7.0″
- Cedarburg 6.2″
- West Bend 6.0″
- Sheboygan 5″-6″
- Merton 5.0″
- NW Milwaukee 4.75″
- Sussex 4.25″
- Reeseville 2.0″
- Greenfield 1.75″
- Milwaukee Mitchell Airport 1.7″
- Oconomowoc 1.5″
- Hales Corner 1.0″
- Kenosha No Snow
By Monday, low pressure will slide into the Ohio Valley. As colder air spills in and winds turn to the northeast, lake enhanced/effect snow will be possible. The light snow will be steadiest in lakeshore counties on Monday. Additional snow accumulations will be possible.
Below is the RPM forecast at noon Monday. This shows the northeast winds, and also the snow(in blue).
Below is the NAM forecast surface map at 6pm Monday. This would suggest the snow continues through the afternoon and that 1″-3″ of snow would be possible in spots Monday afternoon!
Final snow totals from Sunday through Monday will be around 9″-12″+ from Port Washington north to Sheboygan and west into parts of Fond du Lac county. In Milwaukee and Waukesha totals should stay in the 3″-6″ range. 6″-9″ totals will be common around West Bend, Menomonee Falls, and back to Mequon. 1″-3″ for Lake Geneva and Kenosha. A huge spread of snow from one messy storm!
Please continue to post storm updates and snow totals in the comments section of the blog. Look for updates on WISN 12 News!
