Snowfall reports

Early Tuesday morning, there was a steady stream of road crews at Highway 20 and I-94 in Racine County, keeping pace with the snow, leaving mostly just wet pavement for drivers.

Drivers said roads were slick in some spots and they were taking is slow -- leaving plenty of following distance.

FOX6 spoke with one man driving from Chicago to Racine. He said he dealt with changing conditions during his drive -- including snow covered roads earlier Tuesday morning on I-94.

"When I left Chicago it was pretty decent. It wasn't snowing that hard, and when I made it up here, the wind picked up and the snow started coming down," said David Caldwell.

Sunshine returns under high pressure for Wednesday.  Highs will be in the upper 20s near 30 through Thursday.
