Tuesday Snow Storm

 Over the past few days the First Alert weather team has been notifying Milwaukee of an big impact storm that moves in on Tuesday. Our weather models are finally starting to come together a little bit better and we are starting to get a better understanding of what to expect. What first looked like a whopping of snow now looks more like a big wintry mess. There's still about 36 hours until this storm hits, so pay attention to the latest First Alert forecast for any updates.


This storm will start out as snow early Tuesday morning, beginning around 5 AM in the Milwaukee metro area and intensifying through the morning commute. The morning drive will likely be long and hectic so make preparations now and leave plenty of time for your commute.


By mid-morning or noon at the latest, temperatures will warm enough thanks to a stiff southerly wind, that snow will change over to a snow, sleet, freezing rain, rain mix which will dwindle into scattered showers in the afternoon and evening.

Our southern communities, where warmer air and therefore more wintry mix than snow will fall, will see less snow totals than some of our northern communities like Fond du Lac and Sheboygan. At this point snow totals will range from a trace along the IL/WI border to around 4” for our northern areas. Areas in extreme northern Wisconsin can expect almost twice that.
