WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Clouds will give way to some clearing tonight and chilly. Lows by morning in the upper teens to low 20s. Sunshine will be more common on Saturday as the gun deer hunting season gets underway. Temperatures will rise into the mid 30s during the afternoon, while winds will be fairly light.

Clouds will make a comeback for Sunday as a weak front rolls toward the Badger State. Snow showers are expected from late morning into the afternoon, with accumulations of a coating to half inch possible. In most cases, roads will likely be wet, but there might be a few slick spots on those less-traveled roads. Most likely, not enough snow to help with tracking out in the woods.

Monday is expected to be dry with a fair amount of sun and daytime readings topping out in the mid 30s.

Tuesday is a possible First Alert Weather Day. A winter storm system will be moving through the Upper Midwest with snow possibly overspreading the region Tuesday morning. From there, differences are found in the various weather models on the storm track and precipitation types. Right now, the best forecast estimate is for the snow to mix with and change to rain in the southern half of the area as the day goes on, while snow or a wintry mix could continue in the northern half of the area. The precipitation is expected to wind down later Tuesday night.

Snow could turn to a wintry mix south by late morning Tuesday.
