Latest Winter Storm Tonight Expected to Just Graze Shoreline

The National Weather Service is calling for just a dusting to one to two inches of snow in this area overnight.

 

Just as Madison Public Schools decide to re-open after this past weekend's blizzard that dumped 2-3 feet of snow on the state, another winter storm is heading our way.

This latest system, however, is expected to move out to sea south of the state and bring just a dusting to an inch of snow to this part of state, and about 2 inches to the southern shoreline areas, according to the National Weather Service.

The system may start out as rain around 11 p.m. before changing over to snow after midnight. The remnants of the storm will clear out by afternoon on Thursady and it will turn sunny, with light winds and high temperatures in the lower 40s.

Here is the National Weather Service forecast for Madison:
