Several locations digging out from over a foot of snow
Noon Update. There are still a few lake effect flurries and light snow showers mainly now just south of the metro. This activity may continue through mid afternoon before northwest winds finally become strong enough to push the bands further offshore.
At this time there are no advisories or warnings across the area. However, some spots are digging out from over a foot of fresh powdery snow!
Tonight lows will drop to the single digits with chills possibly dropping below zero. Next weather maker comes in as rain on Sunday with temps in the 40s.
UPDATE: A few bands of snow are producing heavier amounts in isolated spots. We are still thinking 1"-2" for the morning hours, with an isolated 3" possibly. The heaviest snow has fallen in our northern tier counties, especially Sheboygan County. For update-to-the-minute coverage, download the free CBS58 Ready Weather App.
A good chunk of the area, especially along the lakeshore, has seen snowfall since Sunday evening. A slow-moving system is bringing snowfall to the area, and with an easterly component off the lake, the lake effect snow machine has turned on.
In Door County, some towns and cities have seen close to two feet of snowfall! The highest totals in our area have been in Sheboygan County where a few observers have seen almost a foot of snow. The farther west you go, the lower the amounts.
Lake effect snow will continue until late this morning before the winds turn and the snow heads on out. An additional inch or two will be possible for Sheboygan, Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha Counties. Inland spots will see snow showers. The Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisory both run until noon today.
Once the snow moves out, the clouds will start to clear and that will send the temperatures plummeting tonight close to zero inland and in the single digits around the lake.
