Rounds of wintry weather possible for the weekend

An active weather pattern will develop this weekend, with two potential systems that may affect southern Wisconsin with wintry weather. The first system could bring snow Friday night. Some accumulation is possible; right now it appears that any snow accumulation should be generally light.

The snow from this first wave will end on Saturday morning, but there is a chance that snow redevelops Saturday afternoon as the second system moves closer. Additional snow accumulation would be possible through early Sunday morning.

Right now, there is higher confidence in the likeliness of the first system. There is significant uncertainty with the second system. If the second system does materialize, southern Wisconsin could see major impacts and the potential for significant snowfall accumulations. At this point, the longer-range weather computer forecast models are very far apart, with possibilities including the storm missing Wisconsin completely to the south to a major winter storm with snowfall amounts around a foot or more.

This is shown in the model comparison below.

An active weather pattern continues into next week, and with the chance for snow on the ground, temperatures will need to be closely monitored.
