LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A handful of Wisconsin school districts are closed Monday, and dozens of schools are opening two hours late, in the wake of the snow and ice storm we had Sunday.

In Crawford County, the De Soto and North Crawford schools are both closed. De Soto had a-third of an inch of rain to go with two-tenths of an inch of snow and sleet. New Glarus schools are also closed, along with Onalaska Luther High School just north of La Crosse.

Much of the western half of Wisconsin had a mix of snow and freezing rain Sunday. Rice Lake had the most snow in the state with just over 5 inches. The largest electric utilities in western Wisconsin report only a handful of power outages Monday morning.

Much of eastern Wisconsin had all snow. Lena and Tigerton had the most with 4 inches. Some parts of the state are expected to get a little more drizzle or freezing drizzle Monday morning.

Rain and sleet are in the forecast Monday night and early Tuesday. Highs are expected to reach the upper-30’s statewide Monday, and the 40’s Tuesday before a new blast of Arctic air is due in on Wednesday.
