Snow to impact Monday afternoon commute
It’s been a rather quiet weekend around southeast Wisconsin, but our weather will turn a bit more active by Monday afternoon as a low pressure system moves through the area.
Wet snow will move in from the west after noon and continue into the afternoon commute.
The snow will start to mix with and change over to rain along and south of I-94 between 3-5 p.m.
Mainly rain is expected after sunset except far northwest of Milwaukee. Any rain or snow looks to come to an end by midnight, but some freezing drizzle may briefly linger in the area.
Under an inch is expected from Milwaukee to Whitewater and southward. 1-3” is expected northwest of the metro, with potentially over 3” in parts of western Fond du Lac county where snow is not expected to change over to rain.
This will impact the afternoon commute across southeast Wisconsin, but the greater impacts will be felt northwest of the Milwaukee area where precip will primarily be falling as snow. Expect slippery or slushy roads during the commute and reduced visibility at times.
There are no advisories out for southeast Wisconsin, but Winter Weather Advisories have been posted across parts of central Wisconsin and the Fox Valley.
There are still some uncertainties in the track of this system as it has shifted a bit south in the last 24 hours, so the forecast may still be tweaked over the next 12-18 hours. Check back for updates.
