Storm Team 4 meteorologist Brian Gotter says a “snow squall” means a certain area could see a quick burst of snow, reducing visibility and making travel hazerdous.
“It’s like having a summer downpour,” Gotter said during Wisconsin’s Afternoon News on WTMJ.
“Where the visibility goes down for a brief second when you get that heavy rain… That’s what we’re expecting,” Gotter said.
“It’s very short-lived… We might get an inch out of that but if you’re out and driving around it’s going to be bad visibility for a few minutes.”
