Madison area expected to get 3 to 5 inches of snow

The Des Moines Register reported that three to seven inches of snow fell in northern Iowa Friday morning.

A winter storm watch is in effect from late Thursday night through Friday evening, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm system stretches from western Montana across the Dakotas and parts of Minnesota, Wisconsin and IL, and reaches as far east as southern MI. The snow is expected to start falling late Thursday afternoon and evening, continuing through Friday as the storm moves east.

WHAT.Snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 4 to 6 inches are expected. In many of our area municipalities, ordinances prohibit on street parking when there is more than two inches of snow on the ground. If the heavy band of snow shifts South we could still see 5 inches of snow or so.

Before the snowstorm moves through Wisconsin, Madison should have clouds and a high of 21 on Thursday.

Snow will begin to develop over northern parts of the state on Wednesday night.

Quiet weather conditions will continue through the overnight hours with skies becoming partly-mostly cloudy. Drivers who were caught in the miserable snowy commute Wednesday are bracing for another round and this is expected to be the biggest snow so far this season.

DeKalb County is bracing for another dumping of the snow on the area. That's why it's a safe bet to say - the best chance for snow on Saturday will be along/north of I-70.

FlightAware.com, which tracks airline traffic, said about 1,050 USA flights were canceled, with about one in five flights into or out of Chicago and Detroit airports called off, per Reuters.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy, high near 18. Sunday night, partly cloudy, with a low around 10. Temps will be trapped in the "teens" and 20s all day tomorrow. That means we dry things out and clear things out pretty quickly on Sunday.
