Latest forecast takes winter storm further south -Haddie
Alert days are in the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday as a storm system tracks across the central US. Right now, it looks like southern Wisconsin will be on the northern edge of this system. Several inches of wet, heavy snow will be possible with this system, with the heaviest accumulations in the far southeastern corner of the state.
The latest forecast models have been trending the track of this storm further to the south. The Winter Storm Watch has been trimmed back and only includes counties in far southeastern Wisconsin. Dane county has been dropped from the Watch.
It looks like snow will spread into southern Wisconsin from the south on Tuesday. The snow could be heavy at times, especially southeast of Dane county. This snowstorm could impact the Tuesday evening commute as well as the commute on Wednesday morning. The snow should taper off from west to east on Wednesday. Total accumulations will range from 1-2″ northwest of Madison to 5″+ southeast of Dane county.
Forecast confidence is low for the track of this storm. If the forecast models continue to trend this storm to the south, snow totals may need to be adjusted again.
