MADISON (WKOW) - Your 27 Storm Track meteorologists are tracking another sizable snow event beginning this evening.

A winter storm warning has been issued for Lafayette, Green, Rock, Walworth and Jefferson counties as of 6 p.m., while a winter weather advisory has been issued for most other counties, excluding our far northern areas.

Snow will move in from west to east this evening around 6-9 pm. Snow will fall at its heaviest at night with lighter accumulations expected through Friday morning. Expect sloppy road conditions heading to work Friday. A final push of lake-enhanced snow will impact our southeast sections through the afternoon, which could impact the evening commute, too.

Highest snow totals will be for our southern sections under the Winter Storm Warning with 5-7" expected. 3-5" are forecast for our central areas, under a Winter Weather Advisory. Our far northern counties will get 1-3".

Because of the wide range in snowfall amounts, if the storm system tracks just a little farther north or south, totals could increase or decrease. Be sure to check in with future forecasts here.
