WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Merry Christmas! Sunshine to start today with clouds returning by the afternoon. A chance of snow showers in the north during the afternoon or evening hours. Highs in the low to mid 30s.

Sunday will once again start off bright with some sunshine, however, clouds are going to be on the increase for the afternoon out ahead of our next weather maker. Highs on Sunday around 30.

Snow is expected to overspread the area Sunday evening, lasting through the night into Monday morning from Highway 10 on north. To the south of Highway 10, the snow will go to a wintry mix and perhaps even rain showers overnight, tapering off leading up to daybreak on Monday morning. Sunday night into Monday is a potential First Alert Weather Day due to the icy conditions that could develop south and the snow accumulation in the rest of the region to the north. Morning snow showers on Monday will give way to a mostly cloudy rest of the day. Highs in the mid 30s.
