FORECAST UPDATED 1:02 PM MONDAY
Freezing rain, sleet and snow will create travel difficulties for north central Wisconsin through tomorrow.
Winter Weather Advisories are posted through 6 PM Tuesday. This long duration, winter weather event is just getting started.
Looking at the current observations, everyone is reporting temperatures in the upper teens and low 20s. Meanwhile, light rain is mixing with the sleet and snow which is freezing on contact with whatever it touches. This scenario makes it difficult to move around and adds weight to trees and power lines.
The freezing rain, sleet and snow will continue into the evening hours. For most of us, it will stay a wintry mix. For some, it will change over to all snow (far north) or even rain (southern Wisconsin). Snow and ice accumulations are likely as a northeast wind gusts near 20 MPH with air temperatures in the upper teens.
Periods of freezing rain, sleet and snow tomorrow. Additional snow and ice accumulations are likely. Untreated roads will be slippery with a layer of ice under any snow that falls. Snow accumulations will be minor. High temperatures will reach into the upper 20s with a light northwest breeze.
The precipitation will wind down to just light freezing drizzle before ending tomorrow night. The skies will turn mostly cloudy as air temperatures settle around 5°.
Looking ahead, Wednesday and Thursday will bring back some sunshine. Seasonal temperatures in the mid to upper 20s will be common. Our next chance for precipitation arrives late Thursday night in the form of a wintry mix that could linger into Friday morning.
MAKE it a GREAT day!
