Additional snow will make travel difficult through Saturday -Haddie
MADISON, Wis. — A slow-moving weather system will bring intermittent snow through Saturday morning that will lead to several inches of new snow for southern Wisconsin. Fog may also impact travel by reducing visibility to a mile or less at times, especially during the nighttime hours.
Light snow will continue on Friday as temperatures climb into the middle 30s. The snow may mix with rain, mainly from Madison southward. As a result, only light accumulation around 1-2″ is expected during the day.
There may be a break in the snow during Friday evening, but moderate to possibly heavy snow is likely on Friday night. Snowfall of 2-5″ is expected by Saturday morning, with the best chances for the higher totals favoring areas east of Madison toward Milwaukee, where some additional moisture may be provided by Lake Michigan.
The snow should taper to flurries on Saturday and eventually come to an end. It’s possible that an additional inch of accumulation may occur on Saturday before the snow diminishes.
Above normal high temperatures in the middle to the upper 30s are expected for much of next week. The snow will melt a little each day, keeping the air moist, and leading to generally cloudy skies and some areas of fog.
