Snow will continue to wraparound and move across the area this evening. Wind and snow will lead to reduced visibilities especially within the advisory.
A rain band moving north through southeast Wisconsin switched over to snow early Monday morning. A few flurries are still lingering but the bulk of the snow has moved out of the local area. Expect roads to remain wet and slick at times this morning but we stay mostly dry until late morning.
Wind gusts have remained strong getting as high as 40 mph Monday morning. The wind will continue to stay strong through Monday night and most of Tuesday. Expect blowing snow to be an issue.
The snow forecast remains on track with the bulk of snow arriving this evening with 1-3" for areas along and south of I-94 and near the lake and 3-5" for communities like West Bend, Beaver Dam and Fond du Lac.

After a very soggy and warm weekend winter is returning. Temperatures on Monday will fall throughout the day starting in the 40s in the morning and then the 30s in the afternoon. Since Saturday some spots locally picked up nearly 2" of rain.
Sunday's rain in Milwaukee broke a new record. 1.07" of rain fell from midnight to midnight Sunday breaking the old record of 0.73" set back in 1954.
Rain showers are lingering Monday morning but as temperatures fall the rain showers will switch over to snow. Some could see snow showers as early as mid-morning but accumulation should mainly be confined to grassy surfaces. Snow starts to accumulate on pavement during the evening as snow falls steadily through early Tuesday morning.
By the time the snow wraps up Tuesday morning expect 1-4" for most of southeast Wisconsin. The heaviest of the snow will fall in some of our northern communities where 3-5" of snow is possible. Areas along and south of I-94 can expect 1-3".
A winter weather advisory has been issued for Fond du Lac, Sheboygan, Dodge and Washington Counties from noon on Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday.
In addition to the snow and dropping temps the wind will be very strong for most of Monday and Tuesday. Wind gusts at times could hit 40 mph which will make blowing snow an issue.
