Many of us are under a Tornado Watch until 8pm, but here's something to ease your mind just a bit. Those devastating EF5 tornadoes are more common in the heart of Tornado Alley, but Wisconsin has only had 6 EF5 tornadoes in our state's recorded history, and only three since the 1800s. Oakfield in 1996 and Barneveld in 1984 were the last two.

WINTER STORM WARNING for central Wisconsin from Wed 12pm until Thurs 1pm
The Fox Valley is staring into what may be the heaviest snowstorm of this winter season! A large and nasty low pressure system is revving up in Kansas today, soaking up a bunch of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, before the jet stream shoots it northeast on Wednesday and delivering a ton of wind and snow to Wisconsin!

Winter Weather Advisory tonight for east-central Wisconsin
We got a little more snow than most of us expected this past Tuesday (or less snow if you remember those early weather model estimates!) and another round of snow is expected tonight. An Alberta Clipper-type storm is going to quickly move through Wisconsin this evening, generating a fast 2-4" of snow in east-central Wisconsin and 1-2" in southern Wisconsin. Temperatures stay slightly below normal ...

The sun is out, temperatures are getting warmer, snow is melting, birds are chirping, March starts on Tuesday and spring starts less than a month from now. So we can start thinking about putting away our winter stuff soon, right? NOT SO FAST! While this weekend looks pretty nice with mild high temperatures in the 40s (maybe near 50 in southern Wisconsin!) and possibly just a little bit of rain on Sunday, big things look to be happening Tuesday.
