Update On Our Next Winter Storm

Despite it being March, we're still looking at another winter storm starting Monday and really picking up steam Tuesday. Here's the latest...

Our timeline looks like this: Snow begins on Monday, but stays fairly light through the day. A few inches of accumulation will be possible, especially off to our west, before snow starts to build in intensity Monday night. The bulk of our snow will happen on Tuesday.

Models have been very consistent in producing a heavy band of snow in the vicinity of the Stateline. Some scenarios have snow totals up to 10-12" in this band. The problem is we don't know where that band of snow will eventually land. Many model runs Sunday afternoon kept it in southern Wisconsin, but it could still shift south. Assuming the heaviest snow stays north, we could still see accumulations of 6" or more by Tuesday night. Regardless of what happens, we will see accumulating snow Monday into Tuesday and it will cause travel concerns, especially on Tuesday.

Because of the threat for heavy snow, the entire Stateline will be under a Winter Storm Watch for Monday and Tuesday. Jo Daviess County will be under a Winter Weather Advisory starting Monday.

Stay tuned to the blog for the latest on this next winter storm.
