Winter Storm Warning for Tuesday

CREATED Mar 4, 2013
  • Print

A flurry is still possible this afternoon but most of southeastern Wisconsin will see mostly cloudy skies with cool temperatures.  The wind starts to increase from the east overnight as a storm system approaches from the southwest.

Most of the snow won't start moving into southeastern Wisconsin until after 4am and it will become more widespread throughout the late morning hours on Tuesday.  The worst period of snow looks to be midday with 3-5" of snow expected across much of the area.  Higher amounts are possible in the southwest with lighter amounts expected in the northeast as this storm is taking a more southern route now.  Snow tapers off late Tuesday night with an additional inch possible, keeping storm totals mainly between 4-7".  Some locally higher amounts are possible and keep in mind the snow totals could change if this storm decides to take a different track.

Snow ends on Wednesday morning but highs stay cool for March, in the low 30s.  A bit more sunshine and mid-30s are possible for the rest of the work week.  Low 40s are possible in some locations this weekend with a few spotty chances for rain, yes rain showers.
