Well, the "big day" is here, and there have been a few forecast tweaks overnight. Here's the latest. Areas of fog this morning have made for some pretty views outside this morning, but southern Wisconsin is already getting some rain or a mix. Most of today's precip will continue as rain or a mix in southern Wisconsin, making this storm similar to this past Sunday's storm there.
Snow should start arriving in the Fox Valley within the next hour or two. The...

Here is the latest from the National Weather Service. Looks like the Fox Valley will get about 6-9" of snow starting tomorrow mid-morning, getting heavy tomorrow afternoon, then diminishing tomorrow night, with light snow remaining through Wednesday morning. Look for a wintry mix at times, especially if you live further south and east, windy conditions blowing around all this snow and annoying shovelers, and maybe even some thundersnow! That should surprise all the ...

So how did everyone enjoy last night's snow? The Fox Valley area was initially in the 2-4" range, but then it strengthened and slowed a bit, which put many of us in the 4-6" range (I measured 4.5" in my yard) and gave most school kids an extra two hours of freedom this morning.
And if you think that's it for a while, you've got another thing coming, and that "thing" is more snow! A fast-moving Canadian system will give us a quick 1-2" of snow late Wedn...
