After the snowfall fun over the weekend, mother nature is brewing an even larger storm from the Midwest through the Southern Plains. What impact will that give western Wisconsin? The slimmest chance for snow.

2 to 4 inches of snow fell across the area over the weekend, but we're still well behind on snowfall for the winter season. Our average to date is around 26'' but we're only sitting around 18.3'' since June 1st, the start of the snow season.

Monday starts cold with temps in the single digits and wind chills below 0 at times. As we stroll through our Monday, high temps will get near Eau Claire's average of 24 degrees. A mix of sun and clouds is on tap through Monday before the edge of the snow hits Wisconsin.

The heaviest snowfall will stay in southern Wisconsin where a winter weather advisory has been issued that includes Madison and Milwaukee. In southern portions of the Coulee Region, a trace to 2'' may be possible.

Meanwhile, we could see some flakes in Buffalo, Jackson and Trempealeau counties. Confidence is very low that we'll get any of the action in Eau Claire, but a slight shift north may change that.

Regardless, the cloud cover will keep temperatures in the teens overnight Monday and we'll go back towards average Tuesday. Midweek will be a bit colder before our next chance of snow Saturday.
