Wisconsin Weather Update for February 11, 2013.

By: HaleStorm , 1:37 PM GMT on February 11, 2013

Scattered light snow showers today, turning cold again by Thursday night.
Yesterday, Winter Storm “Orko” developed a lot of precip across the upper Midwest, but whereas eastern South Dakota and northern/western Minnesota got major snowfall, the dominant precipitation type here in Wisconsin was either rain or freezing rain with temperatures mostly above freezing. Slightly colder air coming in behind the storm system means that most of the storm’s remnants will be light snow rather than rain today, which should come to an end entirely later today as the low pressure system moves off to the east-northeast.

A small disturbance may bring a new round of light snow to Wisconsin Wednesday night and into Thursday, but otherwise it looks like a calm week of weather for a change with a warmer start turning cold again by Thursday night.
