Light mix to rain expected Sunday

NOW: Light mix to rain expected Sunday

Clouds were stubborn across southeast Wisconsin today with only a few peeks of sun here or there. The clouds will hang around tonight as a low pressure system develops across the northern Plains. A band of snow will lift across the northern half of the state overnight, but with very dry air in place nothing more than a few flurries will be possible in Fond du Lac and Sheboygan counties.

Dry conditions look to continue until mid to late morning Sunday, but once precipitation starts to move in between 9-11 am it'll cool temperatures a few degrees, leading to a chance for sleet/freezing rain mix inland. Temperatures should remain warm enough lakeside for all rain thanks to a strong ESE wind.

There could be a few slick/icy spots on the roads away from the lake mid morning to early afternoon with a trace of ice possible, mainly on elevated surfaces. Be careful on bridges and overpasses!

Precipitation will change over to light rain for nearly all of southeast Wisconsin Sunday afternoon as temps rise a few degrees. The exception possible being near Beaver Dam and Fond du Lac where precip may remain as sleet/snow.  Any precipitation looks to taper off by early evening with mainly dry conditions expected Sunday night into Monday morning besides a stray flurry or two. The other big story with this system will be the wind. ESE winds look to gust between 25-35 mph on Sunday, especially in the morning.

After a lull in the afternoon and early evening, winds will really crank up from the west Sunday night into Monday morning behind a cold front with gusts of 40-50 mph expected. 

This will create hazardous north to south travel for high profile vehicles Monday morning.
