The National Weather Service says freezing rain, sleet and snow are expected over much of central, northeast and east-central Wisconsin on Monday and continuing on Tuesday.

Florence and northern Marinette counties will see mostly freezing rain, with ice accumulations predicted in the quarter- to third-inch range, NWS reported.

The ice will result in hard travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Monday.

Tuesday: Rain showers likely possibly mixing with freezing rain after noon, then gradually ending. This is bringing a return to winter conditions, with freezing rain likely holding off for several more hours.

Today: Rain will move back into the area this morning, becoming heavy at times this morning. Temperatures will drop to freezing by 9 PM and rain will lift in from Missouri and over the cold shallow layer of air over southern and central Iowa. Our system should exit the region by Tuesday afternoon.
