Heavy, wet snow for the last week of February -Dana
MADISON, Wis. — Mild weather this weekend may have sprung thoughts of spring, but winter weather will return for the last week of February. Alert Days are in the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday due to the snow impacts.
A large weather system will begin to approach late Monday night into early Tuesday morning. The track of this system will heavily dictate snowfall totals; a small shift to the south will decrease totals for most of central Wisconsin while a small shift north will increase totals. Regardless, Winter Storm Watches are in effect from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning for most of southern Wisconsin.
Snow continues through the day with heavier rounds expected in the afternoon and Tuesday night. Travel conditions will likely be impacted due to accumulating snow on the roadways and reduced visibility during heavy snowfall. Two to four inches of accumulation is expected during the day with the highest totals southeast of Madison.
