First Snowfall In the Books; More To Come

The first snowfall of the season finally came Tuesday, and the winter weather will only intensify later this week.

A winter storm watch will go into effect Thursday afternoon until midnight Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

The NWS says 3 to 6 inches are possible Thursday, though the worst is expected to miss Milwaukee County: blizzard-like conditions are predicted for south-central Wisconsin, including the Madison area.

A winter storm watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.

On Tuesday, numerous spin-outs and crashes were reported throughout southeastern Wisconsin as motorists tried to adjust their driving habits, according to Patch's media partners at Fox 6.
