Decent snow chances increasing Friday night and Saturday

MADISON (WKOW) - Our weather pattern stays active ending with a high snow chance this weekend.


Patchy fog and a light mix combined with temps close to freezing is causing untreated pavement to be a bit slippery this morning.

This afternoon, highs climb to the mid and upper 30s with some sunshine possibly returning as an area of high pressure moves in from the Central Plains.

However, it'll be breezy with gusts out of the SW then W up to 30 mph/


A light wintry mix redevelops as an area of low pressure moves in from the Central Plains. The mix will begin during or right after the midweek morning commute.

It should be mainly light snow for our central and northern areas with an inch or two of new accumulations possible by late-day.

Farther south, some freezing drizzle is possible. Be on the lookout for more slippery spots.

Highest chance for minor accumulating snow Madison and areas north


Temporarily quieter and colder as high pressure moves in from Canada. We'll have a good amount of sunshine and highs in the mid to upper teens.


A stronger storm system will develop through Friday with snow moving in by late-day, possibly impacting the evening commute.

Highest snow chances are at night, but as a warm front moves closer to the Illinois border, some freezing rain is also possible.

If this front moves farther north, we could see more freezing rain which would cause lower snow totals.

At this point, it looks like all of southern Wisconsin will have to shovel as the system exits late-day Saturday. Stay tuned as the storm gets closer!
