***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***
Thank you for spending part of your weekend here on the Weather Watch 12 blog! I wanted to provide a quick update in regards to the wet looking storm system that will impact our area Tuesday Night through early Thursday.
The week should start quiet, possibly some snow showers or flurries Monday Night, but overall most of the heavier precipitation should wait until Tuesday Night or early Wednesday before arriving.
We get new data in our weather center about every 4 hours. Below is just a snapshot from our in-house computer model at 6am Wednesday. This shows low pressure over Illinois, with mainly rain forecast in our area at this time. The blue represents snow. This clearly will not be the final solution for the storm, but certainly a believable solution in my opinion this far out.
This would be a cold rain with temperatures in the 30s to low 40s, with a wind coming in off Lake Michigan. Make sure to watch WISN 12 News at 5:30 and 10:00pm for the latest data.
Look for a new blog entry later this evening on flood potential over the next couple of months, and a hint at the April long range forecast.
Have a great day!
