Snowstorm takes aim at Wisconsin, Minnesota next week, bitter cold to follow

Snow potential Sunday night-Monday night by AccuWeather

Another snowstorm is aiming for Wisconsin and Minnesota at the start of next week, with bitter cold to follow that could see lows dipping below zero, according to forecasters.

Several more inches of snow could fall across parts of Wisconsin Sunday into Monday, with the track of the storm determining where the storm will hit hardest and its intensity, and the cold that follows may lead to the most lake-effect snow of the season, AccuWeather reported.

A weak storm is more likely to take a more easterly track toward the Northeast states, while an intense storm is more likely to track well to the west over the Great Lakes. At this time, a moderate storm is most likely, but substantial snow can fall in a narrow swath, AccuWeather said.

“Enough snow to shovel and plow is forecast from part of South Dakota to central and southern Minnesota, northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson said.

The storm will move out of the southern Rockies this weekend then dip over the southern Plains before turning northeastward across the Mississippi Valley and then the eastern Great Lakes region early next week.

While the current projected path of the storm brings heavy snow to Minneapolis, a shift in the track of the storm could spread accumulating snow farther south toward Chicago or Detroit, AccuWeather said, and that could mean accumulating snow for the Madison area.

The National Weather Service is predicting 3 to 6 inches of snow in Minneapolis, 2 to 4 inches in Eau Claire, lesser amounts in La Crosse, and little to no accumulation in Madison.
