Winter Storm Watch Tuesday

Posted at 5:24 PM, Jan 05, 2024

We have a round of what looks to be a significant snowfall for many of us Tuesday and Tuesday night. There still are a few questions on the exact track and intensity of the system as there is still some time to go before it gets here, and we are on the northwest edge of the swath of snow.

Either way you cut it, this snowfall will start early Tuesday morning and continue through the day, into the night before tapering off. It will be kind of windy so there may be a little blowing and drifting in rural areas, but the mild temperatures during the snow should limit that somewhat. As of this moment, it looks like a line from Southern Oconto County, Eastern Shawano, through Waupaca, Waushara, Green Lake and all areas southeast of there, including the Fox Cities, may end up with 5-8" of snow by the end of this. There may be a little lake enhancement in Manitowoc, and Calumet kicking up the totals even more there. As you head closer to Antigo, this snow should be less, like 1-3" there.

This will be a heavier, wet snow which may stick to tree branches. This weight combined with stronger winds may break a few branches. A little blowing and drifting will also be possible.

These totals are subject to change as we get closer to the event.

Another quick shot of snow is on the way for Thursday, then possibly another for next weekend.
