MILWAUKEE - Southeastern Wisconsin, grab your shovels and snowplows.

Again. And again.

Though the winter storm warning for our area was scheduled to end at 6:00 a.m. Wednesday, there's a small dusting of snow on the way, enough to possibly make you have to get rid of the snow twice today after you already did it Tuesday.

Again. And again.

"There are still flurries in the area, and we're probably going to have them for several hours this morning, but no additional accumulation," said Storm Team 4Caster Craig Koplien.

"It may linger until noon until some places, but again, we're not going to add anything to the totals we picked up."

Totals of more than a foot in parts of our area, especially by Lake Michigan.

"The high end totals that I've seen so far are just about 13 or 14 inches. That's especially along the lake shore from Milwaukee down to Racine and Kenosha.

"As far inland as Waukesha, accumulations are around a foot. If you go further than that, accumulations are under a foot, and in some cases, just single-digit totals."

Still, the main totals were exactly what Koplien and company predicted.

"Pretty much between 10-14" throughout most of Southeastern Wisconsin. It's under 10" inland in Jefferson, Dodge and Fond du Lac Counties."

The blowing and drifting will continue today, but not dramatically.

"It's going to continue to be windy today, not ridiculously windy, 12-25 mile per hour winds which will certainly blow the snow around and will leave the cold wind chills in the single digits this morning, so we are going to have to contend with a real cold winter day," says Koplien.

"Although the blowing probably won't get out of hand, the plow trucks and shovelers will probably have to make another pass or two today because the wind will blow the stuff around for a while yet."

Can we expect more of the white stuff to come this week?

"At least nothing in the short term, as neither today's flurries, nor tomorrow will bring more accumulating snow. There's a possibility of some snow Friday afternoon or Friday night. That looks like light snow or flurries if it even happens at all, with only a real small threat there."
