The Green Bay Packers may have played the Detroit Lions in snow, but the conditions are expected to get milder in Northeast Wisconsin over the next coming days.

The National Weather Service says Green Bay was hit with more than 3.5 inches of snow on Sunday, and another half-inch to inch was expected to accumulate overnight.

But, today's weather will be more moderate, with a high temperature of 31 and partially cloudy, with no precipitation anticipated.

Tuesday should be mostly sunny, with a high near 29 and low around 16. Wednesday and Thursday are expected to get into the 30s and be partly cloudy.

Sunday night, scanner traffic indicated several cars slipped off the road and into ditches due to road conditions.

Snow in Green Bay is 2.5 inches below normal, according to NWS.

Meanwhile, although most major road construction has come to a halt for the year, some work zones remain that could cause backups or other hazardous conditions. U.S. 41 has a few 11-foot travel lanes and reduced shoulders along a 10-mile stretch of that highway in Brown County, according to the state Department of Transportation. The speed limit is reduced accordingly to 55 mph between Scheuring Road and Interstate 43. Twelve miles of the highway also have similar width restrictions in Winnebago County.Also in Brown County, Wisconsin 29 is closed between Packerland Drive and U.S. 41, with traffic being rerouted to the new Shawano Avenue adjacent to old Wisconsin 29.

Many parts of Wisconsin were under a Winter Storm Warning across the state, according to the Associated Press.

Forest, Florence, Marinette and Oconto counties saw between 4 to 6 inches of snow with the storm. In Grantsburg, 7 inches were recorded and nearly 5 inches by afternoon in Lacrosse on Sunday.
