MILWAUKEE - People driving in southeastern Wisconsin may find themselves driving in low visibility Monday morning as they head to work.

A dense fog advisory has been put in effect for all of Southeastern Wisconsin until 9:00 a.m. Monday.

"Low pressure which developed across the central plains is now lifting into our region," explained Storm Team 4Caster Scott Steele. 

"Warm air ahead of this system is leading to areas of dense fog and allowing us to see precipitation in the form of rain, at least initially."

But, he says, temperatures will fall on Monday, and rain should become snow.

"As the disturbance moves away to our east, we'll see our winds shift around to the west and northwest ushering colder temperatures leading to a transition from rain to snow," said Steele. 

"Only minor accumulations are expected around our area."

The good news: according to Steele, "the balance of the work week looks to be very quiet with periods of sunshine."
