MILWAUKEE - Snow is in the forecast for Thursday in the Milwaukee County area, and it should be the greatest 24 hour snowfall of the winter season to this date.

The snow will be falling at times throughout the day with a general four to eight inches from Milwaukee County north to Sheboygan, with an inch or two less south of Milwaukee.

Temperatures have warmed back to seasonal ranges with low-thirties through Saturday and then another storm with warmer air for Sunday.

Last winter we experienced less than 30 inches of snow in Milwaukee, well below the normal snowfall of around 47 inches.

This winter season we are running well below normal once again with only 15.7 inches, which is around 15 inches below normal through this date.

One thing I have learned in Milwaukee forecasting is that a winter season can start out with little snowfall and make it up later in the season, or start out with heavy snowfalls and then end up with very little.

During this winter season in Milwaukee the largest snowstorm for December was 3.1 inches, while in snowless January the greatest twenty-four hour snowfall was 1.3 inches. So far this month the biggest snowfall was 1.6 inches.

Snow cover has been meager also with the greatest snow depth at three inches on Dec. 30.
