MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -A large winter storm made a glancing blow to southern Wisconsin on Friday. Areas north and west of Madison didn’t see too much, while areas south and east picked up several inches. Most places picked up 1-3 inches of snowfall with a heavier band dropping between 3-5 inches. Any lingering snow showers will push out late Friday night. If traveling late Friday night or early Saturday, be on the look out for lingering slick spots along with patchy fog.

SNOW TOTALS: The big question heading into this storm was if we would overcome the dry air at the surface. Well...we did...

The first weekend of the new year should bring some calmer weather. While we won’t see abundant sunshine, there will be some brighter periods where clouds give way. We will keep an eye on a weak disturbance Saturday evening into Sunday morning. This will bring additional cloud cover and perhaps a few flurries. No accumulation is expected. Temperatures will be very seasonable for early January and into the middle and upper 20s. Is should be a great weekend to get outside and enjoy all those winter activities with all the snow we picked up this week.

Next week looks to be relatively calm across the area with a warming trend. A mix of sun and clouds expected as temperatures rebound into the lower and middle 30s. Outside of a few flurries from time to time, no big weathermakers are expected in the next week. There are still no signs of any arctic air infiltrating the area anytime soon either.
