MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Sunday flurries are exiting Southern Wisconsin. Madison picked up 0.1″ of snowfall with most other places reporting trace amounts. Watch out for a few slick spots overnight!

As high-pressure moves out, winds turn out of the West and then NW. Overnight lows drop into the teens again with decreasing clouds into Monday.

Monday filtered sunshine at times and highs climbing into the upper 20s. Afternoon readings top out in the lower 30s by Tuesday in advance of low-pressure. This next weather maker passes through the Northern Great Lakes Tuesday -- bringing snow showers to the Northwoods & Upper Peninsula of Michigan. A few flurries/mix are possible around and NE of the Capital Region on Tuesday. We’re monitoring for freezing drizzle late Tuesday into Wednesday before and just as a strong cold front moves by. Chances at this point remain low.

Expect a sharp drop in temperatures through Wednesday and Thursday as another arctic high-pressure system moves in. Blustery conditions develop on Wednesday with strong NW winds. Morning wind chills could dip below -10°. Temperatures will fall into the single digits by the afternoon.

Highs will bottom out in the single-digits and teens Thursday/Friday. The next chance for light snowfall may arrive early next weekend.
