snow/mix/rain for a few more hours - dry air is pushing in on the western edge. Seeing many 1 and 2" reports...definitely some spots higher than that by now. Freezing rain is/was occurring in the forecasted zone between NE IA, WI/IL border, and southern WI (highest amts on elevated surfaces). Doesn't appear to be significant yet. Heaviest precip will move off early Sat AM replaced by light freezing drizzle or mist throughout the morning ahead.

In the midst of round #1 - Heavy snow coming down now Platteville to Madison to Watertown. Up to 2" reported southwest of Madison seems on target. Dry air holding tight in Green Bay (NE WI). Wintry mix, freezing rain, and rain in the far south...could see freezing rain down near the WI/IL border but temps near/above freezing still in Janesville. Heavy precipitation tonight, lighter tomorrow into the mid-day hours. Round #2 Sat PM.

Storm beginning in SW WI - Dry air to overcome and no reports yet but the whole nine yards wrapped up in that precip zone. Snow on the northern fringe. Wintry mix or freezing rain could develop along the WI/IL border. Moving east tonight. Temps have cooler to the freezing mark in SW WI.
working on the forecast now - Should be ready by around 2PM. It was helpful to wait for the 12z EC. Stay tuned!
WINTER STORM UPDATE #1 - Big differences on morning model runs. 00/06z EC/GFS have came in weaker/further east with the heavy snow focusing on southeast WI. Short range models(NAM, etc) coming in right now much different from EC/GFS and support the previous forecast. I will wait to make changes until full 12z run has arrived later this morning but I think we might need to blend them together. Then the risk of freezing rain along the WI-IL border. There is ALOT to clear up on the forecast this afternoon! CORRECTION (graphic image on the right should say "06Z GFS")
Sat AM looking more snowy/icy - Will need to give more attention to late Friday night/early Saturday morning. The attached image is for 12AM Sat showing snow breaking out in southern WI. Latest runs showing more support for this. Also freezing rain risk increasing along the WI/IL border that needs a close look. Otherwise everything else on track. May need to boost snow totals per short range models but will vet that with the 12z Friday model runs.
12:00PM ROAD CONDITIONS - Very icy/slippery conditions have developed across central and northern Wisconsin. Seeing reports of ice covered roads especially central WI. Travel carefully!
  1
Ice Covered Roads Possible Today - travel not advised between Tomah and La Crosse. Several reports of icy glaze on roads with developing wintry mix. Moving into northern WI.
Light Wintry Mix Develops Today - nothing showing up right now except a blip in SW WI. Radar reflectivities will develop and expand across WI today. Light wintry mix, snow(north), and scattered rain showers south. Temperatures still in low 20's north..rising in the south. Slippery roads possible.

10" in Clark County - The highest so far in Wisconsin. Curious to see more reports from the area, including Wausau up to Rhinelander.

Snow ending - Snow is ending moving to the south. Close to 9 inches reported near Rhinelander the highest so far. Most places east and west in the 3-6 range
9:15PM Road Conditions - Do you think we get 100% snow covered roads tonight? It's possible! Slippery spots in east central WI. Still in good shape around Milwaukee but will worsen somewhat tonight.

WINTER STORM UPDATE - Looks weak on radar and partially due to radar not picking it up near Rhinelander. Snowing across the north; heaviest in upper MI and western WI. Snow will pivot out of the north today and begin impacting southern Wisconsin closer to 6PM. Pretty quiet down south until then.
Transition to Snow - Places west of Wisconsin Rapids already seeing snow. Rain across much of northern & NE-WI right now but beginning to change over in some areas. Reflectivites kind of weak right now...expect intensification today.
Snowfall Forecast Updated - Increased Wisconsin Rapids/Eau Claire into the 6-10" range. Still like 3-6" for northern WI overall. Trimming back slightly in eastern WI where temps remain quite warm.
Winter storm taking shape - Rain will move in from the south overnight. It's coming in from the south-southeast - kind of unusual storm track - and will pivot around throughout the event. Rain will turn to snow (heavy in spots) during the early/mid morning hours tomorrow morning.

Heavy rain overnight into Sun AM - A large slug of rain will pass through overnight. Additional rainfall amounts in the 0.5-1.0" range. The rain will reduce to a mist/drizzle Sunday morning/mid day as the dry slot sweeps through.
WEEKEND STORM UPDATE #2 - the first bands working in now. It's falling as a light rain or freezing rain in the north. Slippery spots reported in the Eau Claire/Minneapolis region. Wintry mix to continue today in the north, changeover to rain for everyone this afternoon/tonight.
WEEKEND STORM UPDATE #1 - A strong storm system will arrive during the mid-day and afternoon hours on Saturday. A wintry mix/icy conditions are possible at onset before a change over to rain for northern WI. Rainfall amounts by Sunday could reach an inch and half, perhaps more locally. Lesser amounts in SE WI and upper MI. Sunday will be quiet with light drizzle, mist, or even a quick burst of sun as the dry slot passes completely through WI. Snow likely on Monday as the storm redevelops. More on that later.
storm update test! - Words about the storm. Should be pretty interesting. Stay tuned!
