Light snow and flurries have developed across southern Wisconsin
this morning. There could be some spots where freezing drizzle mix
in. Little to no accumulations are expected with snow ending in
the next few hours.



An area of light snow has developed and will continue over
southern Wisconsin over the next few hours. Any accumulations
would be a very light dusting at best. Slight chance for some
freezing drizzle to mix in. IFR ceilings will improve to MVFR
through the morning and early afternoon. Watching a slight chance
for freezing drizzle and light snow between 06Z and 12Z Tuesday.
Chances are too low to include in TAFs at this time.


.PREV DISCUSSION... (Issued 327 AM CST Mon Jan 27 2020)


Today through Tuesday...Forecast Confidence is Medium...

Mostly quiet conditions are expected for today and tomorrow. The
only wrinkle in the forecast is a couple slight chances for
freezing drizzle and light snow early this morning and late
tonight. With low level moisture in place, a surface front moving
through early this morning may spark off areas of freezing
drizzle or light snow. Any precipitation is expected to end by
sunrise. Tonight another boundary, at 850mb, moves through between
midnight and 6am. This will be the best window for any freezing
drizzle or light snow and could cause some slick spots on roads.


Wednesday Night through Sunday night...Forecast Confidence High...

Relatively quiet and cloudy conditions will continue through the
rest of the workweek. Other than perhaps a stray flurry, Wednesday
and Thursday should be dry. Highs will be in the low to mid 30s,
with lows ranging from the upper teens to mid 20s. Winds will
generally be light and variable.

Somewhat better organized upper level flow will push into the area
Friday and Saturday. This will bring low chances for light rain or
snow. Upper level ridging will then move in for the remainder of
the weekend, with temps approaching 40 by Sunday. A few peaks of
sun will even be possible at times.


Any IFR ceilings will lift above 1,000 feet late this morning.
Still watching a slight chance for some light freezing drizzle
this morning. Any freezing drizzle would end by 12Z. MVFR ceilings
will continue into Tuesday morning. Watching for another round of
light freezing drizzle after 06Z tonight.


North to northwest winds continue and become lighter as we head
into the middle of the week. High pressure moving through southern
Canada will allow light winds and low wave heights to continue
through Friday.
