Some areas that are still digging out from the Christmas Day blizzard are going to be the target of the snowstorm during the first days of 2017.
After unleashing frigid air and snow across the West, a storm will emerge over the Rockies and rapidly strengthen.
Snow began to fall across Montana, Wyoming, the Dakotas and Minnesota on Sunday, and will continue to accumulate in these areas into Monday night.
Under the bullseye of heavy snow, snowfall totals will reach 6 to 12 inches.
The area that will most likely experience the highest snow totals from this storm will extend from North Dakota to northern Minnesota and part of Northwest Ontario.
