The snow showers are moving in for the first significant snowstorm of the season for some of SE WI. There is a Winter Storm Warning for Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha counties until 6 pm Tuesday. These areas will get 6"+ with the potential for some lake effect snow as well.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 6 pm for the rest of SE WI except Fond du lac and Dodge counties. Those two counties will get about 2" of snow. The rest of the area will see 3-5" of snow. With lows tonight near 30 and highs near 32 all day on Tuesday, this will be all snow. And it will be wet sticky snow as well.

Tuesday night drops into the teens with a brisk wind and Wednesday will be in the 20s with wind chills in the teens and a few flurries. Thursday is the cold day of the week with highs near 20.
