Snow showers on Bascom

The University of Wisconsin-Madison campus and the rest of the city got a bit over 2 inches of snow before midnight on Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

Update: General plowing operation underway in Madison; main streets in good shape

Coming on the heels of an extended warm streak, the snowfall transformed what had been a spring-like view of brown grass and mud into a more seasonally appropriate winter landscape in a matter of hours.

More snow on Tuesday before storm exits area. See how much will fall and when it will end.

The university set up a time-lapse camera at the top of Bascom Hill to give viewers a sense of the transition.
