Snow showers will arrive in western Wisconsin this evening and continue into Sunday. The highest totals in our southern counties.
After a quiet and even sunny at times start to the weekend the weather will become more active this evening. The heaviest snow will fall during the overnight hours Saturday and into Sunday. Several inches of accumulation are likely with the heaviest totals in the Coulee Region. Thankfully most of the snow will be falling in the time period where few people will be traveling, but still be ready for poor driving conditions late Saturday and into early Sunday. The winds will be on the lighter side keeping blowing and drifting concerns low.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect this afternoon through Sunday for areas in purple. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the same time period for counties in pink.
Here's a look at the latest thinking in terms of accumulation. This will be lighter, "fluffier" snow due to colder temperatures than the snow from last weekend. This event will still make roads slippery in areas and definitely enough that many of us will need to shovels and or snowblowers.
