Low pressure is expected to slide northeast from the central
Plains across Wisconsin tonight into Tuesday, moving northeast of
the region Tuesday night. Light snow will continue to spread
across the region into tonight, lingering into Tuesday across
northern Wisconsin. 3 to 6 inches of snow is forecast across
northern Wisconsin, heaviest in far northeast Wisconsin.
The snow will transition to a brief mix, then change to rain
across southern Wisconsin Tuesday morning. Snowfall amounts of 1
to 3 inches are forecast from La Crosse to Sheboygan, with amounts
under an inch toward the Illinois border.
A strong cold front will move east through the region Tuesday
afternoon, with drier air behind it, ending the precipitation
from west to east.
Another low pressure system moving northeast into northern Indiana
later Wednesday into Wednesday night will bring another shot of
winter weather to Wisconsin. Freezing rain is possible over
southeast Wisconsin and parts of northern Illinois Wednesday
night, with mainly light snow over the rest of the region. This
may cause slippery roads during this time.
