Snow ended early this afternoon with totals ranging 2 to 5 inches across most of Western Wisconsin. Reports sent in to both Stormtracker 18's Weather Trackers and reports passed on from the NWS from across the area are posted to the map below.
The temperatures have warmed up to about 20 this afternoon, which is warm enough for salt to start working, but temperatures fall back into the teens tonight and eventually will bottom out near or just below 10 degrees where salt isn't as effective again. That means main roads should be better (but not perfect) tomorrow morning than they were even before this round of snow, but side streets, rural highways, and parking lots will remain slick.
Temperatures in the mid 20s again tomorrow afternoon mean that salt will continue to work, but more snow will arrive in the afternoon. This means roads will become slippery once again, especially for the evening commute.
This round won't bring quite as much snow, but still expect between 1 and 3 inches of new accumulation between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Refer to the map below for the latest forecast from Stormtracker 18.
Some flurries linger into the day Saturday but not much additional, if any, accumulation is expected. Temperatures will be in the teens all day and slowly falling, so plows and salters will again be fighting against packed snow and ice that will be very difficult to remove with salt.
Thus, slippery stretches on roads will linger into early next week when temperatures are once again expected to be quite cold.
Lows Saturday night through much of next week range from the positive single digits all the way down to about -10. Highs will be between roughly 10 and 20 degrees all week.
Small snow chances arrive starting Tuesday, but not a lot of temperature improvement is expected until at least next weekend, if not closer to Christmas.
