Snow could return after record high temps

Heaviest snow expected in central Wisconsin
Snow could return after record high temps

After a record-setting week of 60s, winter will return to southern Wisconsin by the end of this week.

News 3 meteorologist Haddie McLean said later this week we’ll trade 60s for 30s as temperatures return to normal for late February and a storm system will track from the Rockies to the Great Lakes.

Initially, temperatures will be warm enough for the precipitation to fall as rain, but as colder air wraps in around this system, temperatures will start to fall on Friday and the rain will mix with and change to snow by Friday night.

Some accumulation is possible Friday night into Saturday morning. The track of this system may change over the next few days, which will affect where the heaviest snow falls.

As of Wednesday morning, it looks like the heaviest snow will be in northern and central Wisconsin, where more than 12″ is possible.
