Accumulating snow expected Saturday night

A fast-moving storm system will bring some of the first accumulating snow of the season to southern Wisconsin Saturday night.

News 3 meteorologist Haddie McLean said light snow will begin to spread into the area from west to east on Saturday afternoon and continue through Saturday night. The snow will wind down quickly Sunday morning.

Plenty of cold air will be in place with during this storm so a light 1 to 3 inches of snowfall is expected. The highest amounts will be west of Dane County.

The Madison Streets Division has begun applying salt brine to major streets to prevent snow from bonding with the pavement and reducing the need for salt when the snow starts.

Alternate side parking restrictions go into effect at 1 a.m. Saturday morning.
