As Storm Team 4Caster Brian Gotter predicted, a line of storms is heading north of Milwaukee County, and it's causing a mix of precipitation that's brought a plethora of weather situations to Southeastern Wisconsin.

"This is a huge storm with the potential for a lot of snow to our north," said Gotter.  "Here in the Milwaukee area we'll see a lot of rain. Some places could pick up around an inch."

That's why a flood watch has been issued for Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, Kenosha and Walworth Counties until 6:00 a.m. Friday.

If you live in a flood-prone area, near a river or creek that typically floods, the rain and snow melt could lead to rising waters this afternoon and tonight.

If you live north of Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties, however, expect snow, and in some areas, lots of it.

"It looks like the storm will track in a way such that there will be snow accumulation well north of Milwaukee," Gotter said.  "In fact, at the top end, 3"-6" could accumulate in both Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties, slightly lower, but nevertheless accumulating snows could fall in Dodge, Washington and even Northern Ozaukee, too."

The expected snow in Fond du Lac, Dodge, Sheboygan, and Washington Counties has brought about a winter weather advisory until midnight Friday.

"Dodge and Washington Counties (will probably receive) 2", 3", maybe 4".

"In between there, there's going to be a mix of rain and snow going on. That transition line is going to be lying most of this afternoon and early evening somewhere between Milwaukee and Waukesha on the southern edge, and Fond Du Lac and Sheboygan on the northern edge."

"Eventually we'll all have the precipitation changeover to snow, including Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties, too, but that's not going to happen until late tonight, until close to midnight, and by that point, the storm's going to be pretty much gone."
