All the snow we picked up Sunday (which was 2-5") melted under the mild sun. That water is freezing on the roads for your Monday morning commute. The roads will not warm to above freezing until 9AM for the southern half of the state, and 10AM for the northern half of the state. Temperatures will climb to the mid 30s under mostly sunny skies. That is 5-10 degrees cooler than normal. Monday will be the one day this week where there is no precipitation. Early Tuesday a weak disturbance rolls through bringing scattered rain/snow mix. The showers should end around 10AM.


The biggest storm of the week arrives Wednesday night. It will start as snow and as Thursday arrives, the precipitation will change to sleet. Thursday will be very wet, accumulating 1.5" of sleet. If it is cooler and turns to snow, we could see 4-6" of snow! Right now though, the models keep it as sleet through Friday morning. Another system arrives Saturday through Sunday bringing about 1" of snow.
