Slight snow accumulation in forecast for Tuesday night, Wednesday

snowflake-sxc-ilker-webThe latest local National Weather Service forecast for Western Kenosha County is now calling for perhaps as much as 1.5 inches of snow and sleet accumulation over Tuesday night, Wednesday and Wednesday night.

Rain is expected to start Tuesday night before 9 a.m. Snow may start after that, but is expected to end before midnight, though it may reappear after 3 a.m., Wednesday and probably be done by 6 a.m., when there may be some sleet. Rain will persist through the day, with some snow likely to reappear Wednesday evening.

Wednesday’s high temperature is forecast for 39.

So that sounds pretty good, if you’re not going too far a field. Kenosha and Racine counties are the only counties in the southern half of Wisconsin that do not have a winter weather advisory or worse in effect. If you’re going south, Illinois looks OK too. But if you are heading virtually anywhere else in Wisconsin, you should expect a bit uglier weather.
