Another Winter Storm Watch in Effect

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Southern Wisconsin, beginning late Wednesday night and lasting through Thursday night.

Another complex late season storm is taking aim on the region, this one with even more questions than its predecessor that roamed through the area last week.

This storm is likely to produce a rain/snow mix at the beginning, late Wednesday night, perhaps mixing with some freezing rain across Northern Illinois toward daybreak Thursday. From there, we can expect anything from rain to snow, sleet to freezing rain, before changing back over to all snow late Thursday night into Friday morning.

It looks like the heavy snow corridor will set up North of I-43, from Janesville to Milwaukee, then up toward Sheboygan to Portage, WI. Accumulations here in Northern Illinois appear to be minimal, but again, it must be stated that just a minor southward tweak in the storm track would have major implications.

Just to catch people up, we're currently at 72.1" of snow for the season. 2.5" of snow would break the all-time record for snowiest season ever!
