Winter is Back -- Watching for Friday Flurries
Most of the accumulating snow stays far West of Wisconsin. That said, SW Wisconsin could receive around an inch of snowfall thru Saturday morning.
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A strong winter storm continues to move through Iowa, Minnesota and extreme southwestern Wisconsin this evening, with occasional flurries and snow showers continuing into early Saturday morning. Snow accumulations will range from 6-10″ in Iowa, to a few inches near Viroqua to an inch or less for most of Madison and the rest of southern Wisconsin into early Saturday morning. Expect this storm system to slowly clear out Saturday, with afternoon sunshine returning as temperatures warm up into the 20s for the start of the weekend.
The next chance for some very light snowfall, will arrive Sunday afternoon with a quick moving, clipper type system rolling through The Badger State. Accumulation will looks to be very minimal at this time, with another chance for some flurries Tuesday night into Wednesday of next week. Behind that system, a quick shot of Arctic Air will make a return, with daytime highs struggling to stay in the teens by Thursday afternoon. Expect overnight lows to drop below zero for Thursday and Friday mornings next week.
The long-range models continue to show a drop in temperatures at the end of next week and it still looks like the below-average trend for the end of January is on tap for Wisconsin.
