Roads expect to be slippery once again as northeast Wisconsin, including Door and Kewaunee counties, enters a winter weather advisory beginning Monday evening. According to the National Weather Service, a wintry mix will enter the area at around 5 p.m., bringing freezing rain that could build up to a quarter inch of ice and an additional one to three inches of sleet and snow. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says drivers will have to be careful if they have to travel.
Joski recommends giving yourself plenty of time to get to your destination and also lots of space between you and other vehicles on the road. The winter weather advisory expires at noon on Tuesday.
