Wintry weather returns to southern Wisconsin Monday night and Tuesday, according to the forecast from the National Weather Service in Sullivan. 

A winter weather advisory is in effect across the southern part of the state from late Monday afternoon into Tuesday, with 3 to 6 inches of snow during that period in the Milwaukee, Waukesha and Port Washington areas. 

Mixed precipitation will develop later Monday afternoon, changing over to snow. The snow may be moderate to briefly heavy for a one- to three-hour period and affect the evening commute. A period of freezing drizzle is possible tonight.


Gusts from the southeast may bring blowing and drifting snow, reducing visibility and causing poor driving conditions. 

The weather service forecast calls for a high near 38 Monday with an east wind 15 to 20 mph and gusts as high as 35 mph.

Drizzle mixed with snow is forecast for Monday night and early Tuesday. The low will be around 31. Winds will be out of the southeast 15 to 25 mph, with gusts up to 40 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.

More drizzle mixed with snow is expected Tuesday morning, becoming all snow after 7 a.m., with a high near 37. The southeast wind will become northeast in the afternoon.
