Another Coating of Snow Tonight

NOW: Another Coating of Snow Tonight

Low temperatures across the region were mighty cold to start off our Tuesday.

But, it was a calm day that came with plenty of sun, albeit another below average day for temperatures.

Now the clouds are thickening and in time we'll be tracking some light snow. Here's a look at Ready Doppler as of 5pm. Snow is just starting to sneak into far western Wisconsin, but won't arrive here until late. Most data points to an arrival time after the midnight hour in southeast Wisconsin.

It looks to be fairly scattered in nature, and should wind down by the commute early Wednesday morning. Once again the highest totals are likely to be found across our southern spots. Overall a dusting to an inch of snowfall is what we are forecasting with this minor event. The snow comes with temps around ten degrees overnight, so it will be cold, but with light wind expected, we're not looking for harsh wind chills or blowing snow issues.

To date we have received 5.5" of snowfall this month and 21.7" since our cold season began. That still puts us about 9 inches below normal. While this next system won't help cut that deficit much, we're already looking toward another longer duration snow, similar to our past weekend event. The next snow starts late Thursday and continues into Saturday. More on that in the days to come, stay tuned!
