Snow moves in Saturday night and continues into Sunday. This event will bring heavy snow to much of the area, especially communities close to Lake Michigan. Travel will be very difficult Saturday night though much of Sunday.

Snow will move in Saturday evening and continue into the night. A few inches of accumulation are likely by midnight. Winds will be gusty as well, causing reduced visibility, and potential for some blowing snow. Overnight lows fall to around 30-degrees.

Sunday morning snow will be widespread, with a few more inches of accumulation by 8am. Snow will wind down by early afternoon for inland areas, but snow will continue near the lake. Lake enhanced snow will continue from Sheboygan through Kenosha through the afternoon, with scattered snow holding into the evening for Racine and Kenosha counties. Sunday will be another windy day with gusts to 35 mph. Highs Sunday will be in the low 30s, but it will feel colder due to the wind.

Large waves will build on Lake Michigan, from 7-10 feet, and with an onshore wind some minor lakeside flooding and erosion are possible.

In total, snow amounts near the lake will be higher than areas inland. Jefferson, Dodge, and Fond du Lac counties likely see 2-6" of snow, while closer to the lake, we expect 6-10". This will be a heavy, wet snow, so use caution while shoveling, and take frequent breaks.

Monday - Wednesday look fairly quiet with some sunshine. A messy rain snow mix looks to arrive Thursday. Check back for updates.
