Travel across Northeast Wisconsin could be tricky Tuesday morning. 

The City of Green Bay's Public Works Department said they sent plows out around 3 a.m. to clear roadways before the temperatures rise. 

Brown County Dispatch said they saw a few minor traffic incidents overnight where people slid into ditches because of the snow. 

The city of Oshkosh had as many as 30 plows on the roadways Tuesday morning. They'd like drivers to refrain from parking on the street so that they can be cleaned. 

Manitowoc County Dispatch saw multiple vehicles stuck in the snow overnight. They sent out plows around 3 a.m. and advised if you can stay home, you should do so.
