MILWAUKEE -- Snow is in the forecast for Tuesday, April 3. That's also Election Day in Wisconsin -- with two statewide races -- for Wisconsin Supreme Court (Rebecca Dallet vs. Michael Screnock) and a referendum on whether to eliminate the state treasurer position.
According to FOX6 Weather Expert Tom Wachs, as of early Sunday evening, April 1, we'll see rain for most of SE Wisconsin Tuesday -- changing over to snow by late afternoon/evening.
Most areas won't see much in the form of accumulation, until you head north.
According to FOX6 Chief Meteorologist Rob Haswell, we'll see as little as 1-2" in our south counties where much of it will be rain. For our northern counties, we'll see as high as 4-7" but the higher amounts will be localized.
A winter weather advisory was issued early Monday morning for parts of southeastern Wisconsin. The advisory includes Sheboygan, Washington, Dodge and Ozaukee counties. It takes effect at 1 a.m. Tuesday and continues until 6 a.m. Wednesday, April 4.
