First widespread snow done, another on the way

The first widespread accumulating snow of the season is here and gone. Snow started falling Friday evening and lingered through Saturday morning with everyone across southeast Wisconsin getting measureable snow. Snow totals varied a bit with a few spots getting over 2" and some falling short of an inch but the majority of locations picked up between 1-2" of snow. 

The official snow total at Mitchell International Airport was 1" which is the first inch of snow for Milwaukee this season. That first inch comes just a few days later than last year's first inch and a week behind the average of December 2.

The system that brought us this first snow was a quick moving Clipper and we have a few more Clippers rolling through over the next week. The next one is quickly approaching and arrives on Monday. There are some disagreements between weather models so confidence on the timing and amounts of the snow is a little uncertain. At this point, two waves of snow look possible that could impact both the morning and the evening commute. 

Snow totals look very similar to Saturday morning with everyone getting less than 2". I would expect some minor changes to the snow totals and timing forecast over the next 24 hours.
