A low pressure center is tracking into our region from the West. This system will spread light snow from West to East as the day progresses. There isn't an abundance of moisture associated with the storm, so accumulation will be limited and the snow will be more of a light powdery pile instead of that heavy wet stuff from last week. Widespread daytime accumulation of 1" to 3" is likely with lesser amounts toward the Illinois border and greatest amounts North. A period of Lake Effect enhancement may also boost the totals North of Milwaukee. Winds will be light so blowing and drifting won't be much of a factor. It appears this will be a prolonged event with additional accumulation tonight. This could cause some travel difficulties. The snow will gradually taper off late tonight. The weekend and beginning of next week, including the New Year holiday appear to be quiet with no big storms expected and temperatures just slightly below the seasonal average high of 30 degrees.
Have a great Friday and terrific weekend!
