    The weekend started with a blizzard bearing down on New England and now is ending with another blizzard slamming the northern Plains.

    Today's blizzard will continue to bring several hours of windswept snow, poor visibility and dangerous travel conditions to places from north-central Nebraska to west-central Minnesota.

    The blizzard has forced officials to close a 150-mile stretch of Interstate 90 through central South Dakota and I-29 from Watertown, S.D., to the North Dakota border.

    While a repeat of the totals that reached 40 inches in Connecticut with the New England blizzard are not expected, snow amounts from today's blizzard will approach or exceed a foot.

    East of the blizzard area, an icy mix is also threatening travelers around Minneapolis and Wisconsin. This danger will spread to northern Michigan by day's end.

    The above map does not include the snow that fell before Sunday afternoon. For a larger version of this map, please visit the AccuWeather.com Winter Weather Center.

    Soaking rain and thunderstorms to the south are soaking the western Ohio and Tennessee valleys and the lower Mississippi Valley with severe thunderstorms a concern across the latter region.

    The rain and thunderstorms will continue to press eastward tonight as windswept snow keeps travel treacherous across the eastern Dakotas, Minnesota and neighboring northern Ontario.

    Blustery conditions will follow for Monday throughout the Midwest with snow showers in store for Minnesota and the Great Lakes. The heaviest snow on Monday will be found in the lake-effect snow belts of Michigan.
