5-7 Inches of snow Forcast for Tomorrow!
 
Finally after 9 months of ownership, I may get to play in the snow, a real amount of snow. I live in southern Wisconsin and this will be the first snow fall over 3 inches! HEY!

If the forecast is true, I will post some picks of the jeep rocking the snow!

Enjoy your snowfall and playing with the Jeep in the snow, it has been dry here.

I'm actually a bit anxious about getting any serious snowfall this year. Those Latitude tires just don't look like they're going to cut it.

Up in the Northwest corner you will notice we have snow, actually been snowing last 4 days. Just so happens my brand new GC has been in the shop for the last 5 days :-(

My experience is that the Michelin Latitudes are pretty good in snow and ice, but totally hopeless in mud -- the tread fills up and tires become slicks.

You'll be fine.

Oooh! I'm mildly jealous - I could have used that snow yesterday. Our dealership had a contest where anyone who bought a vehicle in the last month or two would receive $10,000 if it snowed 10 cm (~4"). Alas, barely a snowflake here.

On the "bright" side we've had bags of cold the last week or so. As I write this it is -36C (-33F), and the high today is -18C (0F). Thank goodness for heated seats and a heated steering wheel!

Would love to finally get some snow. If we keep having these major fires in the middle of winter it is going to be a very ugly spring/summer.

Chicago: received 4-8" from this same storm. Latitudes only gripped in a straight line, not while turning.

The stock tires are ok in the snow, althought going to a nice AT tire is worth it!
