    ...WINTER STORM POSSIBLE LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT...

    ABUNDANT MOISTURE STREAMING NORTHWARD AHEAD OF THE LOW WILL WRAP AROUND AND GENERATE SNOW LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT ACROSS SOUTHERN WISCONSIN. A NARROW BAND OF HEAVY SNOW COULD SET UP ALONG AND SOUTHEAST OF A LINE FROM JANESVILLE TO SHEBOYGAN. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE...WHICH COULD LEAD TO RAPID ACCUMULATIONS OF SNOW...ESPECIALLY NEAR THE MILWAUKEE METRO AREA.

    CURRENT INDICATIONS SUGGEST SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS WILL RANGE FROM 6 TO 9 INCHES ACROSS MUCH OF SOUTHEAST WISCONSIN... TAPERING OFF RAPIDLY TO AROUND 3 INCHES NEAR THE WISCONSIN DELLS. LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE WHERE THE HEAVIEST BAND OF SNOW SETS UP AND PERSISTS FOR A PROLONGED PERIOD OF TIME.

    IN ADDITION...NORTHEAST WINDS WILL STRENGTHEN TO 15 TO 25 MPH... GUSTING UP TO 35 MPH. AS A RESULT...AREAS OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW ARE POSSIBLE SATURDAY NIGHT.

    "Large snowflakes" constitute an alert for you people?

    I don't believe I've even seen a watch or warning that actually specified snowflake size before. :eek:

    Dependant on the type of system, most forecasters will know the type of snow that will be falling. I can honestly say that i've never advertised that to the general public though. *shrugs*

    It's not supposed to dip lower than the 40s here. We are supposed to get rain every day starting on the first though . . . . April showers and all. :)
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Aha! I knew it. A snowflake conspiracy!!:mad::D

    Warning doesn't seem as dire this morning...

    ... WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 4 AM CDT SUNDAY...
    A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 4 AM CDT SUNDAY.

    RAIN IS EXPECTED TO CHANGE TO SNOW THIS EVENING AND CONTINUE OVERNIGHT. A TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATION OF 2 TO 5 INCHES IS EXPECTED TO OCCUR... WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE. THE COMBINATION OF A STRONG AND GUSTY NORTH WIND AND LARGE WET SNOWFLAKES WILL REDUCE THE VISIBILITY BELOW ONE MILE AT TIMES TONIGHT.

    A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT UP TO 5 INCHES OF SNOW IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE ADVISORY AREA. ROADS MAY RAPIDLY BECOME SLIPPERY ONCE THE SNOW BEGINS... SO MOTORISTS SHOULD PLAN FOR A SLOWER THAN NORMAL TRIP. BE ESPECIALLY ALERT WHEN APPROACHING BRIDGES... OVERPASSES... AND CURVES.
