Heavy Snow stuck to trees, bringing down some branches and causing some power outages.

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Parts of north central Wisconsin got almost five inches of snow -- and to the south, folks are trudging through five inches of rain from the weekend.

In between, there are a number of icy spots.

In the Fond du Lac area, almost 2,500 Wisconsin Power and Light customers were without power as of early Monday afternoon. Menominee County still had almost 300 customers in the dark. Door County had almost 90 outages.

Just over 3,100 customers throughout the state were without power early Monday afternoon. That's about 2,000 fewer customers than Monday morning.

Most of Wisconsin was dry after the lunch hour, with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Light snow was still falling in far northern Wisconsin, and far south central areas with temperatures in the 20's and low 30s.

It's all supposed to clear out by the time the night's over. Tuesday, forecasters expect a dry day with highs in the 30's to near 40.  

Snow could return Tuesday night into Wednesday.
