Low pressure, which has been producing round after round of snow in the region since Wednesday morning, will throw one more wave of snow in our direction later this evening, lasting into the morning hours on Saturday.
The snow is forecast to arrive from 9 PM to Midnight, shifting in from east to west. Snow will fall overnight into Saturday morning from around Highway 51/I-39 on east, while snow showers and light snow will be the theme farther to the west. Roads will quickly become snow covered and hazardous later this evening, and not improve until mid-morning on Saturday as roads are plowed and treated. Total snowfall of 1-2" is expected in the western part of the region, while 2-4" of accumulation is anticipated from around Highway 51/I-39 onto the east. Lows tonight into the upper 20s to around 30.
