Snow is also expected in some parts of the state.

Southeastern Wisconsin could get between 3 and 5 inches of snow, with higher amounts possible. A winter weather advisory goes into effect for that area at 3 p.m. and will remain until noon Tuesday.

Snow is also expected to start falling Monday evening in Manitowoc County, where 2 to 4 inches is possible.

With dangerously cold wind chills all over the state, the weather service warns frostbite can happen in as little as 10 minutes on exposed skin.
