Be ready to break out the shovel - WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

Be ready to break out the shovel


Madison (WKOW) -- Though the weather is going to be great for Black Friday shoppers, it will take a turn later this weekend.

  Low pressure is expected to approach southern Wisconsin in the predawn hours of Sunday, and light snow will develop as a result.

  Light snow will continue throughout the day, ending Sunday night.

  Accumulations are expected to be in the 1-3 inch range, enough that many will need to break out the shovel.

  Highs on Sunday are forecast to be in the mid 30s, so well traveled roads should be wet (or slushy at worst) during the day.

  As the low pulls off to our east Sunday night & Monday it'll turn breezy, and cold air will spill southward from Canada.

  Highs Monday may not get out of the 20s, and lows Monday night will drop well into the teens.

  Last year on December first, Madison received 6.2 inches of snow, so a 1-3 inch snowfall one day earlier on November thirtieth  certainly pales by comparison.
