Snowstorm headed for the Great Lakes Thursday

December 16th, 2012 at 10:24 am by under Weather

While it’s still may days away, weather forecasting tools called computer models are indicating a big storm for the Great Lakes this Thursday.  The storm will have abundant moisture, a strong low pressure system, and lots of wind.  These conditions along with cold air on the back side of the storm will produce large amounts of snow. 

If the storms stay on track  parts of Wisconsin could see 8 to 12 inches of snow.  Heavy snow would have a major impact on holiday travelers by both car and air Thursday and Friday.

We are closely monitoring this potent storm so check back to Fox11online.com and Fox 11 News for the latest forecast.

The maps below show the position of Blizzard Allison on the left, and the forecast for Thursday’s storm on the right.  While not quite as strong or large as Allison, Thursday’s storm has the eastern half of Wisconsin under the sweet spot for heaviest possible snowfall!
