Meteorologist, Haddie McLean said we’ll get a break from the cold and snowy weather for a couple of days with plenty of sunshine and highs in the 30s Tuesday and Wednesday.
A strong late winter storm will move from Kansas to northeast Wisconsin from late Wednesday night through Thursday night. A winter storm watch has been posted for southwest Wisconsin and a blizzard watch is in effect for southeast Minnesota and central Iowa where higher snow totals are expected.
McLean said the storm is expected to intensify quickly as it moves through the region. The exact track of the storm isn’t set in stone yet, but current models bring freezing rain and sleet to southern Wisconsin Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
Some ice accumulation will be possible.
Temperatures will climb to near 40 by midday Thursday and any mixed precipitation will change to rain and even a few thunderstorms. Colder air will arrive late Thursday changing the rain back to snow.
At this point, only minor snowfall accumulations are expected across south-central Wisconsin. However, if the storm track shifts to the east, southern Wisconsin could receive more snow.Tuesday, February 18 2014, 04:33 PM CST
