northern Wisconsin as a cold front moves into the area. The next
chance will come Monday night into Tuesday when a wintry mix will
be possible as a system moves over the region. Some more wintry
mix precipitation will be possible Tuesday night and Wednesday as
a system moves by to the south of the area. And finally, some
light snow could fall Thursday and Thursday night with a system
