Lingering snow Thursday then another round Friday

NOW: Lingering snow Thursday then another round Friday


Wednesday was the biggest snow of the season in Milwaukee (which isn't saying much). 2.5" of snow fell from midnight to midnight Wednesday surpassing the 2.2" of snow we had at the end of December. We are still waiting on our first 3" snowfall. Milwaukee and much of southeast Wisconsin saw more accumulating snow Wednesday night into early Thursday with continued light snow showers. As of 7 AM here are some of the updated snow totals:

Milwaukee is still about 14" behind average on snowfall this season so we can take whatever we can get and we will certainly get more! More light snow showers are expected throughout the morning and afternoon on Thursday. Most of the activity Thursday will stay light but will accumulate so if you only want to shovel once you can wait until the evening hours. Up to an inch of new snow is possible Thursday.

A second round of snow moves in Friday morning arriving towards the end of the morning commute and lasting through the early afternoon. This snowfall will come with very strong wind gusting to 40 mph which will cause lots of blowing snow, visibility issues and even the potential for dangerous snow squalls.

Up to another inch of snow will be possible on Friday pushing two-day totals from Thursday and Friday to 2" in some areas. 

A third round of snow is looking more and more likely for Saturday into Sunday. Another round of accumulating snow will once again be possible. Download the CBS 58 Ready Weather app to track the snow showers and see any changes to the forecast.
