Here she comes!

The area of low pressure has now moved ashore in the Desert Southwest tonight. Snow is falling in the higher elevations of Arizona as Pacific moisture continues to come in under a powerhouse jet stream. Once the storm ejects into the Plains, it will allow a return flow of moisture off of the Gulf of Mexico. Most forecast scenarios show a potential for an inch of liquid precipitation. If that all came as snow with temperatures at 32°, it would be about 10″ of heavy, wet snow. For us, the first 6 hours of the precip should come in the form of rain before changing to heavy, wet snow. Several inches are likely with up to 12″ possible for South-Central Wisconsin. -Eric

    Man I really hope this thing dips a little farther south so we get more snow. 8 inches in Rockford area would be great!
