MADISON (WKOW) - Following another round of snow this weekend, temperatures will warm and some melting will happen.
The last weekend before the final week of February is here and for most of southern Wisconsin, the weekend is going to start of quietly That quiet start is thanks to a high pressure system slides northeast.
Overnight lows will dip below zero, or come close to dipping below zero but this will be the last time the area dips that cold over the next seven days. The reason is because a warm up is on the way ushered in after our next round of snow expected Sunday.
Though coming out of the "southwest", this low will not be bringing a lot of moisture with it. Most of the region will pick up between 1-3" of snow. Isolated spots of 4" may be possible but it's looking unlikely as of Friday afternoon.
Snow will begin through the morning hours on Sunday, picking up in intensity and coverage area by the mid/late afternoon hours on Sunday. The heaviest snow will fall during that same timeframe.
That snow will add to our growing snow pack but our temperatures to kick off next week will help melt that. As of Friday, the forecast is calling upper 30s to low 40s Monday through Wednesday.
