***WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR JEFFERSON & WALWORTH FROM 3AM TONIGHT - 3AM MONDAY***
*****WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR KENOSHA, MILWAUKEE, OZAUKEE, RACINE, WASHINGTON, WAUKESHA FROM 6AM SUNDAY - 6AM MONDAY***

The clouds quickly rolled in after a touch of sunshine this morning, keeping temperatures in the upper 20s today. Cloudy skies will rule the evening and night but an area of low pressure approaches, touching off some flurries late tonight. This low pressure ramps up the moisture overnight and snow will become widespread from the southwest to the northeast from 4am to 8am on Sunday morning. Expect the most intense snow to fall midday with some lake enhancement likely from Grafton through Milwaukee, down to Kenosha with the wind changing to being from the northeast by the end of the evening. Temperatures will be stuck in the mid-20s through the day so expected a drier, fluffy snow with amounts generally in the 2-4" range with higher amounts near the lakefront, generally less than 2" in Dodge & Fond du Lac counties. Some light lake effect bands may linger Sunday night and into Monday morning before tapering off so the early morning commute may still have some slick spots. Some spots of sun will work through the clouds by midday MOnday with highs in the mid-20s.

Tuesday will be partly cloudy with highs in the upper 20s, so just a bit cool for this time of the year. A quick system slides through with more snow for Wednesday though this does not look to be a major snowstorm at this point in time. We'll see a slight warming trend heading into the rest of the work week with highs climbing above freezing for Thursday and Friday with a chance for rain and 40 degrees by Saturday.
