Winter storm to bring rain, ice, snow and wind this weekend
Another powerful March winter storm will track across the Midwest and Great Lakes this weekend, bringing heavy downpours, thunder, a wintry mix, snow and wind. This storm system is still out west finally entering the U.S., and will cruise over the Rockies tonight. They will be plenty of energy and moisture to work with to drop another doozy of a storm.
A wintry mix off the leading edge will be possible Saturday morning. With warming temps and a southerly wind, any mix will switch over to rain for most, if not all, of southeastern Wisconsin. The mix line will be carved around highway 21 and 10 in the central part of the Badger State. North of that line will see several inches of snowfall and blizzard conditions. Those winds will be a huge story for the rest of the weekend with winds over 40 mph.
The precipitation will slowly switch to a mix and snow Saturday night, and if there’s any precipitation leftover on Sunday, everyone will see it switch to snowfall. Temperatures will crash from the 40s early down into the 30s and eventually 20s. Some parts of the region will see minor accumulation; the heaviest snowfall takes place along a line from Green Bay to Eau Claire and north. Stay tuned for further updates.
