Spring storm expected to bring 2-9 inches of snow to southern Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE — Shovels and snow blowers set aside for warmer weather will once again get some use this weekend in Wisconsin.

Forecasters say a strong spring storm could deliver up to nine inches of snow in the Madison area, with lesser amounts elsewhere in southern Wisconsin. The National Weather Service says accumulations will vary depending on what track the storm takes Saturday.


Forecasters say the snow will fall Saturday afternoon and into the evening. But, with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-40s the snow will begin to melt Sunday.

The weather service says southern Wisconsin generally averages about an inch of snow in April.
