Snow Round 2: The Main Course

We have two rounds of snow to get through this weekend. The first round of light snow will linger through the pre-dawn hours of Saturday morning. The first round will be the lesser of the two: the appetizer to the main course.  The main course, of course, is the second round of snow that will blanket the area late Saturday.

Local Timeframe: 1pm Saturday - 7am Sunday

Local Timeframe: 1pm Saturday – 7am Sunday

Snow looks to push back into the area Saturday afternoon after 1pm.  The snow will ramp up in intensity during the late afternoon and evening, continuing into the nighttime hours.  Snow will taper off before dawn Sunday. It appears that 3 to 5 inches of accumulation will be possible when it’s all said and done.  The higher totals will be along and south of the Interstate 88 corridor. The lowest amounts will occur in southern Wisconsin. Temperatures will be in the teens during this snowfall event. Wind will be out of the north-northwest around 5 to 15mph, with a few gusts to 20mph.

Round 2 Snowfall: 3-5"
