UPDATE: Snow to continue into Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE (WKOW) -- The heavy snow tapered off late Monday night, but more, light snow is expected to fall into Tuesday.

Here are some snow totals reported as of 10 p.m. Monday:

  • Shorewood Hills: 4''
  • Verona: 4''
  • Lyndon Station: 3''
  • Sullivan: 3''
  • Janesville: 2''

The snow led to plenty of issues on the roads and at the Dane County Regional Airport. The wind also made travel difficult. Maximum wind gusts varied from 49 miles per hour in Platteville to 33 miles per hour in Montello.  

Several communities declared snow emergencies, so their plows could clear the streets. 

As of 11 p.m. Monday night, no school districts had notified 27 News of any closures or delays for Tuesday. If any do come in, they will be listed HERE.

UPDATE (WKOW) -- 27 Storm Track Meteorologists say a snow system expected to start Monday is moving slowly.

Meteorologists say the system won't get into southern Wisconsin until later in the afternoon now. Originally, it was thought snow would begin late Monday morning. 

The system is expected to affect the afternoon commute.

The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from Monday afternoon until Tuesday afternoon. It expires at different times for different counties.

MADISON (WKOW) - A winter weather advisory is in effect for the entire area. Snow will begin around late Monday morning or early afternoon with a heavy band potentially setting up for parts of southern Wisconsin in the afternoon or evening, so expect difficult travel.

Winds will also be a significant factor with gusts up to 40 mph possible! This will cause blowing snow and near-white out conditions at times Monday PM.

Snow will become lighter and more scattered in nature at night and through the day Tuesday, but a breeze will stick around which will cause continued poor visibility.

The majority of the snow will fall Monday with only additional minor accumulations expected on Tuesday. Most areas will see 4-6" of heavy, wet snow by the time all is said and done while far south and southeast spots could see slightly less. Because ground temps are fairly warm and air temps will hover around freezing, partial snow melt is also expected through the event.

Check back here for updates throughout Monday as your Storm Track meteorologists continue to tweak the forecast!
