The Upper Midwest is bracing for the return of snow and blizzard conditions to start the workweek.

Snow fell for much of Monday across the northern two-thirds of Minnesota and then spread into northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan as the day progressed.

Even as the steadier snow pushed to the east on Monday, travel problems will persisted across Interstates 29 and 94 in the Dakotas and Minnesota as strong winds caused snow to blow and drift back onto the roadways.

The significant snow will bypass Chicago and Detroit, but storm's winds will not. Gusts could be strong enough to break tree limbs, leading to the chance for power outages.

As this storm joins up with the storm that will return heavy snow to the Northeast, winds will become even stronger, with the potential to top 50 mph from Minneapolis to Cincinnati on Monday night and Tuesday.
