Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! A crazy day of weather continues across southeast Wisconsin. Rain, sleet, and snow have been the dominate precipitation types so far. Remember to keep track of the rain, sleet and snow to check out our interactive radar. Just click below!
Below is a radar update at 1:43 pm Sunday. I labeled the areas seeing snow, a mix, and rain. The pockets of yellow below indicate the heaviest bands of precipitation.
Looking at the radar, surface reports, and temperatures can tell us a lot, but please post your storm reports to the comments section of the blog. This will help us get a good understanding of where the rain/mix/snow line is located. Also, any snow reports are appreciated!
As the precipitation wavers in spots from snow to a mix to even rain, it will all change to snow for southeast Wisconsin this evening and tonight. As the surface low passes to our south, some moisture on the backside of the storm will produce light snow that will continue into Monday. This part of the storm will bring additional accumulation to the area. And with winds out of a northeast direction some lake enhanced/effect snow is likely…as we discussed in yesterday’s blog.
Below is the updated snowfall forecast. Very close to the one that I showed last night at 10pm. I’m happy that the snow forecast has stayed pretty consistent even though this is a tricky storm to forecast. The only change is an added band to better represent the pocket of heavy snow in far northern parts of the area, and since 1″-3″ of snow fell in and around Milwaukee Sunday I included more areas in the 3″-6″ band and brought the 6″-10″ band about 20-25 miles farther south.
Look for updates all day on WISN 12 News, and on our newscasts at 5:30 and 10pm. Please share your photos with us in the U-Local section of WISN.com and also feel free to email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
