An Alert Day remains in the forecast for Sunday and Sunday night  as a developing winter storm has maintained the potential to impact far southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois with accumulating snow.

Model runs have been consistently bringing the heaviest snow from this Panhandle Hook snowmaker south and east of Madison. Updated potential snow totals now paints up to a foot of snow possible for portions of northern Illinois. 

We are confident that a more southerly-tracking low is most likely at this time, which would limit snowfall over the area as the northern cut off will be VERY sharp. Here’s the latest expectations from the News 3 First Alert Storm Team.

This means those traveling through northern Illinois and parts of eastern Iowa tomorrow must be prepared for adverse travel conditions from heavy falling snow, along with the potential for blowing snow. 

In the meantime, WINTER STORM WARNINGS are in effect to our south and east, and the system must be watched closely as a slight northern shift in the storm track, even if 30-50 miles, could lead to major changes in the forecast, and substantially higher impacts in the Madison area than currently expected.
