***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! In looking over the models today, and the upcoming pattern, my eyes were drawn to this coming Sunday. In today’s blog we’ll look ahead to another complex forecast in the final days of February.
Between now and then a system will travel to our south, there’s still a chance it would bring some light snow, but we’ll handle that on WISN 12 News in the next couple of days.
For now I want to look ahead to a storm system that will impact the area Sunday and Monday. Of course before we look ahead to a storm, with the LRC we can always look back.
In the case of this coming Sunday-Monday, this part of the pattern would be associated with around January 10. Below is the 500mb map from January 10 showing a trough with two upper lows over the Midwest and Plains.
If we now jump ahead roughly 48-49 days we land on this weekend. The 12Z GFS shows low pressure at the surface near Chicago. This would push milder temperatures in our area, and also a chance of rain, sleet, and snow once again.
While the final solution will shift around before this weekend, I do believe a mixed bag of precipitation will likely occur in southeast Wisconsin. If you have travel plans Sunday into Monday, you can stay up-to-date with the latest forecast here and on WISN 12 News.
In the meantime, if you have questions or thoughts about this potential storm, please post them to the comments section of the blog.
Have a great day!
