NOW: Mid Afternoon Update: Rain and wet snow pushing across the area

Updated: Thursday, January 19th, 2023 3:00pm:

Another batch of rain and wet snow is slowly pivoting across southern Wisconsin this afternoon. Temps are several degrees above freezing for most of the area, so not much in the way of impacts are expected with this mix.

Precipitation will largely wind down mid to late evening with dry weather returning Friday.

Accumulating wet weather was over before daybreak. Here's a look at some of the reports: 

 We are left with a few pockets of drizzle early this afternoon. Additionally, there's another batch of wet weather, mostly rain, on the backside of this storm system and that looks to pivot through this afternoon. No concerns are anticipated there. The best time to see a period of light rain or wet mixed snow showers appears to be between 2-3pm. We are above freezing areawide and roads are in good shape for the day.

 This is what a solid three inch snowfall looks like when temps stay just a tick cooler. Some locations across the Northwoods picked up nine inches of the white stuff! Our next chance for snow looks to come Saturday night into Sunday morning. At this time only a healthy dusting is expected.

The accumulating rain and snow is done across southeast Wisconsin. A few lingering rain and snow showers may be possible the rest of Thursday morning into the afternoon. In addition to some lingering rain/snow, we've also seen a lot of fog develop along with mist and drizzle.

Here's a look at visibility conditions that will updated with time:

A few snow totals are starting to roll in with the highest numbers in Dodge and Fond du Lac Counties where they picked up 2-4" of snow. The rest of our northern counties saw 1-2" with nothing measurable reported south of I-94.

The accumulating snow and rain from Wednesday night has pretty much wrapped up. Areas south of I-94 stayed mostly all mix and rain with little to no accumulation. Northern counties that were under a winter weather advisory did some accumulating snow. Although the accumulating snow and rain has mostly ended, a few light rain and snow showers will be possible throughout the rest of Thursday.

The winter road conditions map from the DOT shows snow covered roads in northern counties, some slipper roads west and north of the Milwaukee metro and mostly wet roads to the south. These road conditions will improve as the Thursday morning commute goes on.

Here's a look at those roads conditions that will update with time:

If you didn't get any or enough snow Wednesday night the next chance to see some snow will be Saturday night into Sunday. This time it looks like we stay on the colder side of the storm so little chance for mix ruining snow totals. Some light snow accumulation is possible
