After four days of snowfall Milwaukee near average for January snow
After four days of measureable snow we've finally hit a quiet stretch of weather. There are no big storm systems in sight but continued cloud cover and an overall abundance of moisture may spark a few flurries or periods of drizzle the next few days which could cause some isolated slick spots.
Here are a handful of snow reports from Wednesday night into Saturday. Most spots were well within the forecast of 3-6". The lowest totals were lakeside where warmer temps and rain ate into some of the snow totals but Milwaukee still managed to get 3.3" of official snow at the airport. Western locations picked up the most where a few saw a little more than 6".
With the additional snowfall we are just a scosh below-average for the month and last year and about 2" above-average for the entire season.
Despite gaining 3" of snow in Milwaukee on top of a snow depth of 5" this time last week the snow depth as of Monday morning sits at 3". Due to the mild temperatures and rain mixing with the snow a lot of melting and compacting occurred. Expect more of that melting the next few days with temperatures staying in the low to middle 30s.
