Parade of Weather Systems Marches On! (Updated 4:00 PM 2/3)

Southern Wisconsin will continue to experience a parade of weather systems over the next few days. These weather systems will contribute to a deepening snow cover across the region. Temperatures will remain below normal for early February until Tuesday as well.

A series of weak weather systems remains embedded in a belt of fast-moving steering winds across southern Canada, the upper midwest and eastern U.S. The first of the next two rounds will start this evening, as a system moving through the Canadian Prairies will take a southeast track and affect Wisconsin. Snowfall amounts of 2 to 6 inches are expected across most areas. Hazardous travel conditions will develop tonight and will continue through the Monday morning commute. Check the latest information here. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for tonight into early Monday for most areas of southern Wisconsin (the map below shows the headlines currently in effect for Wisconsin).

Finally, another weather maker is currently located in the northern Pacific as illustrated in the first image, a water vapor satellite animation from Sunday afternoon. This system will likely bring another round of snow to southern Wisconsin on Tuesday. As such, keep the snow thrower gassed up and the snow shovel close by, as more snow is on the way. Bring it on!

Always allow extra time to reach your destination, as the bouts of powdery snow we continue to experience will quickly cause slippery roads and reduced visibility.
