Winter Wallop

CREATED Feb 7, 2013

Another low pressure center is tracking right over head and as expected began producing a Wintery mix of precipitation overnight North of Milwaukee.  The bulk of the mess will happen during the mid to late morning and afternoon today.  This system is different from the other clipper storms earlier in the week for a few reasons.  First, the atmosphere has warmed and that's also led to significantly more moisture to work with.  Not only does that mean more snow than the previous disturbances, but also a different type of snow.  This round will be a heavier, wetter batch making it noticable more difficult to move around.  At the same time, this storm will see more vigorous forcing in the atmosphere from another developing low pressure coming at us from the Southwest that strengthens almost on top of us.  The snow will diminish and taper off tonight.  Tomorrow and Saturday look to be quiet with yet another storm set to approach on Sunday.  That one should be more of a rain and snow mix.
Stay safe in the slick conditions!
