...WINTRY PRECIPITATION EXPECTED TONIGHT AND TUESDAY...

A COMPLEX STORM SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT WISCONSIN TONIGHT
AND TUESDAY. AT 1035 PM...SNOW WAS FALLING ACROSS MOST OF THE
AREA...WITH RAIN OR A RAIN SNOW MIX FROM THE FOX VALLEY...EAST...
TO THE LAKESHORE.

THE BAND OF PRECIPITATION THAT WAS OVER THE AREA DURING THE LATE
EVENING WILL EDGE A BIT FURTHER NORTH AND WEAKEN OVERNIGHT.
TEMPERATURES AT MOST LOCATIONS WHERE SNOW WAS FALLING WERE NEAR
FREEZING...BUT THE SNOW WILL FALL HARD ENOUGH TO RESULT IN AT
LEAST A SLUSHY ACCUMULATION ON ROADS AND SIDEWALKS...AND SLIPPERY
TRAVEL CONDITIONS.

THE PRECIPITATION OVER THE FOX VALLEY AND LAKESHORE WILL REMAIN
PRIMARILY RAIN...AND THE RAIN WILL PROBABLY EXPAND A LITTLE
FARTHER NORTHWEST OVERNIGHT...EVENTUALLY REACHING A LINE FROM NEAR
WAUTOMA...TO WAUPACA...TO SHAWANO...TO OCONTO...TO STURGEON BAY.

A NEW BAND OF HEAVIER PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN TO SURGE NORTH
INTO THE AREA TOWARD DAYBREAK. COOLING WITH THIS BAND OF
PRECIPITATION COULD RESULT IN A BRIEF CHANGE BACK TO SNOW IN THE
GREEN BAY AND APPLETON AREAS FOR THE MORNING COMMUTE. ALTHOUGH
THERE IS CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY OVER WHETHER OR NOT THIS WILL
OCCUR...IF IT DOES...A BURST OF FAIRLY HEAVY SNOW COULD COAT THE
ROADS WITH SLUSH AND HAMPER THE MORNING COMMUTE. ANYONE IN THE GREEN
BAY AND APPLETON AREAS SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF
ENCOUNTERING SLIPPERY ROADS TUESDAY MORNING.

THE BAND OF PRECIPITATION WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH ACROSS THE REST OF
THE AREA BY LATE TUESDAY MORNING...AND THEN LINGER INTO THE
AFTERNOON. THE HEAVIEST SNOWS IN CENTRAL THROUGH NORTHEAST
WISCONSIN ARE EXPECTED TO OCCUR WITH THIS BAND...SO TRAVEL IN
THESE AREAS IS LIKELY TO BE HAZARDOUS MUCH OF THE DAY TUESDAY.

ANYONE TRAVELING ACROSS CENTRAL OR NORTHERN WISCONSIN TONIGHT OR
TUESDAY SHOULD BE PREPARED TO ENCOUNTER SLICK ROADS. ALLOW EXTRA
TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION.
