Ice pellets began to fall in Waukesha at 4:35am at a temperature of 30°. Milwaukee saw rain start at 5:52am with a temperature of 33°. Fortunately, road crews where out treating the roads and surface temperatures were right around freezing. By the end of the morning commute, most of the mixed precipitation tapered off to mist and drizzle with temperatures remaining above freezing Monday afternoon. All Advisories ended this morning.

Accumulations do pick up in the Fox River Valley. Shiocton received 3\" of snow and most locations around Green Bay were in the 2 to 4 inch range of wet snow.
This afternoon we continue to experience widespread mist and drizzle that is forecast to change to flurries. Flurries around Milwaukee transition to snow showers in Green Bay. Don't be surprised to see snow, especially early in the game. Accumulations in Green Bay should be light. Here is the forecast for the game:
