Gas up the snowblower
Bundle up, Lake Country, it looks like another winter storm is headed this way.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch from Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. A mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected to develop late tonight and Saturday morning. It may turn to rain for a time, and will then change to snow Saturday afternoon. Snow may be moderate to heavy, and gusty winds mean blowing and drifting is expected Saturday night and Sunday.
Snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are possible before it all wraps up Sunday night. Higher accumulation is expected in the northern parts of Waukesha and Jefferson counties.
The area will be hit with a second punch going into the start of next week, as frigid temperatures are expected to follow the weekend's precipitation. Wind chills of -15 to -30 are expected Sunday night into Monday.
The National Weather Service noted that the track of the storm remains somewhat uncertain. "A slight shift north or south will impact snow amounts and the amount of mixed precipitation," it said in a news release. "The most uncertain area is along the populated I-94 corridor from Madison to Milwaukee."
