Tonight's Weather Impact Scale: None. No impactful weather is expected tongiht.
Most of the snow so far today has stayed north and west of Madison. Light snow will continue spread east across the rest of the area this afternoon and evening. Light snow could start to fall in Madison between 2-4 p.m. and Janesville between 3-5 p.m. Snowfall totals will be around an inch.
Despite the light snow, it's still going to have an impact on your commute home. Falling snow will reduce your visibility. The ground is also very cold, so any snow that falls will stick. Slick and snowy roads could slow you down.
