A mix of rain and snow will be possible again Saturday night and Sunday morning as colder air works in behind this storm. Eventually, precipitation will turn to all snow Sunday and into Monday, though it will be light.
Most of the precipitation that falls across southern Wisconsin will be in the form of rain. Right now, snow accumulation should be an inch or less in the Madison area and points south. However, central Wisconsin may see several inches of new snow from this storm.
