After the snow mix ends this afternoon, up to an inch of rain falls for Milwaukee early this week

The Milwaukee area could receive a second round of light snow or mixed precipitation Sunday afternoon, before up to an inch of steady rain moves into the area Monday through Tuesday.

After some light snowfall Sunday morning left some accumulations on highways north of Madison, another half inch to two inches could fall in the afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

But little will accumulate in counties south of Fox Valley — the Milwaukee metro area already has temperatures above freezing, so precipitation will likely be a mix of rain and snow.

Precipitation will change to rain Monday in southern Wisconsin, beginning early in the morning and continuing throughout the day. After a possible interruption overnight, there will be a new wave of rain Tuesday morning which will slow down in the afternoon.

Between three-quarters and an inch of rain could fall over the next few days. Widespread flooding is unlikely, apart from the possibility of water accumulating on roads in some areas Monday evening, so use caution.

“Given the current drought in the area, we do not expect it to be heavy enough over a short enough period of time to cause flooding,” said Michaela Heeren, a meteorologist with the NWS.

Temperatures Monday and Tuesday will also stay around 50 degrees. Wind gusts could reach 30 to 35 miles per hour.
