Lake effect snow in northwest in was making for a messy morning commute on Thursday, and could dump up to 4 inches in some areas by the afternoon.
27 Storm Track meteorologist Branden Borremans said most of south-central Wisconsin will see a dusting of snow, mostly falling in the afternoon, while southwest Wisconsin will see nothing and counties north of Dane County could see 1-2 inches of snow. "Some slick roads and treacherous travel can be expected should the snow materialize as now forecast".
The expected snowfall is the result of a storm system centered over IN that will track eastward before heading out to sea Thursday morning.
"We're looking at around an inch of snow", he said.
Highs this weekend are expected to be above the normal 31, with 34 on Saturday and 36 on Sunday.
The heaviest snow has moved out of the area.
"It really is a combination of bridge and road temperatures and any small accumulation of snow combined with all the tires of rush hour causing friction that can make snow change right to ice and cause a nasty commute", Strong said. The low at night will be around 19. Partly sunny, with a high near 41.
