Light snow possible Christmas Eve, Friday
Some sunshine, cold temperatures expected
MADISON, Wis. — A storm system will develop and move through the Midwest early this holiday week.
Monday will be cloudy and breezy with areas of fog, light rain and light snow in the morning. Rain will become more widespread in the afternoon, but may continue to mix with some light snow in areas northwest of Madison.
Widespread rain and fog will continue Monday night as temperatures continue to warm through the evening hours. Rain may continue to mix with snow northwest of Madison Monday night.
As the area of low pressure moves northeast on Tuesday, southern Wisconsin will be in the warm sector of the system. Light rain and drizzle will be possible.
As the low pressure system over Wisconsin moves to the east it will merge with another low pressure system moving up from the Gulf Coast. This will cause the merged system to stall to our northeast as it intensifies into Christmas Eve day.
Christmas Eve will be cloudy and breezy with a small chance for light snow. A better chance for widespread snow showers will stay east of Wisconsin. Christmas Day will be variably cloudy and a bit breezy.
Snow is possible Friday as another system moves through Wisconsin, and minor snow accumulations are possible. The weekend looks rather quiet with some sunshine, but cold temperatures.
