RIGHT NOW / TONIGHT - Today is shaping up to be a rather lethargic day. There was a band of light snow from Winona (MN) to Wausau for several hours. Very light snow or freezing drizzle was reported in southern Wisconsin. One or two spots of relatively higher intensity snow here and there. Just nothing real substantial going on anywhere. Pretty much how I explained it in our video update this morning. If you look to the south you will see radar returns are definitely beginning to increase.

TONIGHT/WEDS AM - Snowfall will gradually increase tonight. Our best chance for heavy snow will be Wednesday morning when the low slide by to the southeast. The timing does not look good for the morning commute which will be challenging in the warning area. Heavy snow is possible with accumulation rates up to 1"/hr. We will be providing real time updates tonight as the storm evolves.

Not much happening through midnight tonight. After midnight the low will finally push through.  This could cause big headaches for the Monday AM commute.
Perhaps 1-3" by midnight. After midnight the low will finally push through. I believe this will cause big headaches for the Monday AM commute.

The comma head portion of the storm will arrive Wednesday morning.
