This system is another pan-handle hook that will swoop northeastward from the southern Rockies and pick up abundant amounts of moisture as it closes in on the upper Midwest.

Snowfall amounts will range from a widespread 6 to 10 inches across Western Wisconsin with isolated amounts that could break 12 inches in some spots. The better chances for higher totals will be towards the central part of the state.
Make sure you give yourself plenty of time of the roads both Tuesday morning and Tuesday night.
