Nov 3 2018 6:00 PM CST| 0 Comments | Wisconsin | Weather Forecasting

A low pressure system will bring rain, snow, and wind to Wisconsin this weekend. The storm will begin Saturday night in western Wisconsin expanding across the rest of the state Sunday morning.

Widespread Rain - Spots to 1.5"

Current forecasts show potential widespread 0.5 -1.0" with some places up to 1.5". Will see how short range models look today and go from there.

Wisconsin Weather
1.0- 1.5" of rain across central Wisconsin.

Snow Rain Mix North

1-3" of snow north with locally higher amounts possible. Winter Wx Advisories have been issued. Each model handles the amount of snow accumulation differently due to complicated thermal profiles. The main message is that snow will be possible this weekend in the north, but that shouldn't be a big surprise for folks up there.

Wisconsin Weather
1-3" across northern Wisconsin. Locally higher amounts possible.

Wind Gusts up to 45MPH

It could be worse. The strongest wind gusts will occur during the morning or daytime on Sunday. Not expecting a prolonged event, perhaps only a few hours at 45 MPH gust intensity. The low keeps er movin therefore this might only be a small detail. Still if you have stuff laying around outside better get after it before Sunday.

Wisconsin Weather
Wind gusts up to 45MPH for a few hours on Sunday. Weaker gusts to the west.

NEXT WEEK

A stronger storm is looming for Tuesday next week that will bring more wind, rain, and the potential for accumulating snow (mainly north if at all). It is early and things can change.

Models are showing stronger storm for early next week. It is early and things can change.

Colder than average temps will descend into the region following the storm. lake effect snow could break out across upper Michigan later in the week. The GFS ensemble forecast showing temperature anomaly between 2-6° F below average between Nov 7 to Nov 12. Brrr.
