Snow, Sleet & Rain Monday

Date of Story: 
Saturday, February 13, 2016

Snow should start in Lake Country very early Monday morning. But because the air is so dry, it may not be evident until 5 or 6 A.M. Snow will continue, and accumulate about an inch, until about 10 A.M. In mid-morning, it will change-over to sleet and freezing rain until about 4 P.M. Monday afternoon. At that point, it will change-over to all rain…through Monday night into Tuesday. With temperatures Tuesday in the 40’s and 50’s, much of the snow/sleet should wash away.
