Are we finally going to see a real snowstorm? Tod Pritchard with Wisconsin Emergency Management says a storm system is bearing down on the Badger state from the Dakotas, bringing with it the potential for three to five inches of wet, slushy snow, perhaps even more for Milwaukee. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for southern Wisconsin starting Thursday morning. The slow-moving system is expected to stay in place through Friday morning.
Pritchard notes, much of the state has been spoiled this winter. “When I’m taking my son to the zoo on a Sunday afternoon and we’re walking around in a light jacket, and it’s February in Wisconsin, you know there’s something wrong,” he says.
