Early March storm could bring snow late Monday through Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

9:30 am Update: The latest weather charts indicate that the snow for tonight and Tuesday will be a few miles further west than earlier indicated. This would mean a slight shift in the heaviest snow (3 to 8 inches) to far western Taylor county (around Gilman and Lublin), western Clark county (Greenwood, Neillsville and areas further west), and into Juneau county. It is looking more likely that areas east and northeast of Marathon county will have little if any snow, while the central part of the area (Merrill, Wausau, Mosinee, and Steven Point) still has a chance of 1 to 2 inches. Western Wood county, around Marshfield and Pittsville, could end up with 2 to 3 inches.

** A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for tonight and Tuesday for Taylor, Clark, Juneau, Jackson, and Adams counties. 3 to 8 inches of snow is possible in the WARNING area.

** A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for tonight and Tuesday for Price, Wood, Portage, Marathon, Waushara, and Ashland counties. 1 to 3 inches of snow is likely in the ADVISORY area.

Today

: Mostly cloudy in the southern and western part of the area, partly sunny in the northeast (north and east of Wausau).  High: 29.  Wind: Becoming ESE~10

Tuesday: Snow likely. Heaviest snow (4 to 8 inches) south and west of Marathon county. 1 to 4 inches likely around Marathon county, an inch or less to the north and east.   High: 29.  Wind: NE 10-15

It looks like another snow storm will affect the area early in the week. The clouds we see out there today are moving in ahead of the storm. The snow will not develop for our area until later to night and into Tuesday. The focus for the heavier snow with this storm system will be to the south and west of Marathon county. It looks like there will be a sharp cut-off for the areas that receive several inches and the areas that end up with hardly anything. The areas with the least chance of snow are to the north and east. Cities such as Shawano, Wabeno, and Eagle River, will likely have an inch or less. Around Marathon county will be the transition zone. Eastern parts of Marathon county near Birnamwood and Wittenberg might only have an inch or so, while out toward Stratford we could be talking 3 or 4 inches. Farther west and south in locations such as Neillsville, City Point, and Necedah is where 5, 6, or 7 inches will likely fall. So once again, today will be dry with increasing clouds and high temps in the upper 20's to low 30's(north). Tonight and tomorrow is when the snow will move on through. High temps on Tuesday will be in the upper 20's to around 30.

Later this week the weather looks fairly nice. We should have decreasing clouds on Wednesday and sunny to partly cloudy skies on Thursday. On Friday we will have a few more clouds but temps will still be mild. High temps should hit the low 30's on Wednesday, the mid 30's on Thursday and the upper 30's on Friday. Over the weekend another storm system will be moving into the middle of the country. This storm could bring some rain and snow into our area by Sunday and Monday. High temps should remain in the mid to upper 30's on Saturday and Sunday.

Have a fine Monday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, 4:07 a.m., 4-March-2013
