  • Major winter storm beginning to abate and heavy precipitation returns to the Northwest

The winter storm that has hammered much of the north-central U.S. over the
past couple of days is now beginning to wind down across the Great Lakes
region, and a second surface low has developed off the New England coast.
One more day of rain, snow, and some ice is expected across the Northeast
as the coastal low slowly tracks northward across the region. The
heaviest snow is expected for northern Maine where 6 to 12 inches of
accumulation is likely. Lake enhanced snow is forecast, mainly from Lake
Erie and Lake Ontario, as cold northwesterly flow around the departing low
blows across the warmer lake waters.

For the Pacific Northwest, a pair of cold fronts will make their way
inland with a surge of moisture off the Pacific. The result will be heavy
rain for coastal areas of Washington and Oregon, and heavy snow for the
Olympics and Cascades. The central and northern Rockies will also be
affected by these storm systems with at least a foot of snow possible for
the higher elevations of northern Idaho and western Montana through
Thursday morning.

Elsewhere across the continental U.S., showers and thunderstorms are
forecast to develop across the western Gulf Coast region on Wednesday in
association with a warm front lifting northward from the Gulf of Mexico.
Mainly dry conditions are expected from western Texas to the Midwest, and
also from Florida to the Mid-Atlantic. Much of the nation should begin
the new year with temperatures near to above normal.


Moderate to heavy snow will continue until around midnight, and then begin to taper off during the early morning hours.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for portions of southern and central Wisconsin into Tuesday morning. Slick conditions along with blowing and drifting snow are expected.
New Year’s Eve will be dry but cool, with temperatures ranging from the mid to upper teens to low to mid 20s. A steady west wind will keep wind chills in the teens for most of the night.
Milwaukee Live Radar


Areas along the Wisconsin border have tapered to a lighter snow where a tenth or two may still be possible. Bands of locally moderate snowfall still exist across the central metro area and toward NW Indiana. Expect a bit more moderate snow and reduced visibility to 1 mile for a short time, but most of the moderate snow will exit to the southeast near or shortly after daybreak. Motorists should expect slush or snow covered roadways for the rush and may want to plan on allowing for a little extra time Tuesday morning.
Snow will quickly end this morning, but cloudy skies and blustery conditions will be in place to round out 2019. Seasonally cool weather will be in place for the evening with wind chills in the teens. Sunshine will return for New Year’s Day 2020, with mild conditions persisting for a few days. Rain chances return Thursday night into Friday, with rain changing to snow in some areas Friday night into early Saturday.
Chicago Radar


Light snow accumulations possible over parts of the area Tuesday morning.
Indianapolis Radar


Gusty winds light to moderate snow this morning. Accumulations of 1 to 4 inches north of US-24. Low visibility and slick roads are likely. The heaviest snowfall rates (and worst driving conditions) will be from 3 to 9 am.
