Snow gives way to slippery Monday drive, freezing temps follow

Eau Claire (WQOW)- Light snow will continue through the evening hours, but come to an end around midnight or shortly after.

Expect another half inch to an inch of accumulation before it's all said and done, kicking totals up to about 1-3 inches across western Wisconsin.

Temperatures will once again be the headline the next few days as they take a tumble during the day on Monday. We'll see single digit highs early on with afternoon temperatures dropping to below zero and very dangerous wind chills near 30 below by Monday evening.  

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Buffalo, Trempealeau, Jackson, Clark and Taylor counties through 6 a.m. Monday morning, meaning travel could be difficult with snow covered roads and patchy blowing snow.

Eau Claire, WI (WQOW) - The snow will gradually taper off tonight, but many roads will still be at least partially snow-covered and slippery for the Monday morning commute.

Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for all of western Wisconsin until 6 AM Monday.

Stormtracker 18 Weather meteorologists say between 1 and 3 inches of snow fell in the area on Sunday, producing poor travel conditions.  Travel will still be difficult into Monday due to the consistency of the snow, cold temperatures, and drifting.

Looking ahead to the work week, another surge of bitterly cold air will affect the Chippewa Valley, limiting highs to the single digits and allowing temperatures to fall well below zero during the overnights.  Indications are the cold weather (below average temps) could continue into the third week of December.
