Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! While it may seem like winter will never end, there are some signs of Spring near.
The first arrives this weekend. Early Sunday morning daylight saving time begins. This means before you head to bed Saturday night, set your clocks ahead one hour, or else you may be late for any Sunday morning plans you may have!
Daylight saving time is also a great time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.
With the change in time here is a look at sunrise and sunset times this Sunday, March 13.
The next sign of Spring arrives March 20 with the equinox, and the offical start of Spring.
While calendar is showing Spring is near, Mother Nature has had other ideas. So far in March 3.2″ of snow has been recorded in Milwaukee. And temperatures have been a little below average(-0.7F)
Another glancing blow of winter weather will arrive to start the weekend. A clipper system will drop into the upper Midwest and Great Lakes. This will bring some snow showers to the area, but right now it looks like the bulk of the snow will stay north of our viewing area.
Below is the latest GFS forecast map for Saturday. Notice the low well north of Milwaukee.
If you have plans on Saturday it may be breezy, and some flurries or snow showers are possible. But as of this writing, there looks to be little to no snow for our area.
Have a great day and please add your thoughts or questions to the comments section of the blog and watch WISN 12 News for the updates!
