Monday Forecast Update...Freezing Rain/Snow

Our weather will continue to change for the Monday evening commute.  A disturbance across Illinois will kick off winter weather all across Wisconsin tonight into Tuesday morning.  As of now the only county under a winter weather advisory is Fon du Lac, and that goes out until 6 am Tuesday.

The winter weather will start to roll in after 5 pm.  At the start it will be a mix of light rain, freezing rain, and some light snow.  Most of the precipitation will turn over to snow for our northern counties after 8 pm.  The Milwaukee area and south will see a mix of light rain or freezing rain through midnight.

Take a look at the forecast graphic above.  Overall the highest totals will be confined across Sheboygan, Fon du Lac, Washington, Ozaukee, and Dodge counties.  In general those spots will see 2 to 4 inches of snow.

The further south you go the lower the accumulation.  Milwaukee and south will likely see up to an inch of snow; however, those areas could also see some light freezing rain below a tenth of an inch.

Light freezing rain or drizzle could make bridges and overpasses slick.  The morning commute could be trouble for our northern counties, so plan extra time for your travels.

Some flurries will stick around for Tuesday morning, but the accumulating snow should be done by 4 am.
