    More Snow, Ice Aim for Northern Plains

    The storm that brought heavy snow to part of the Great Basin and the Rockies over the weekend will slice across part of the Plains and the Upper Midwest into Tuesday.

    The storm will not pack the heavy load of snow it did over the West, where between 1 and 2 feet of snow fell on some locations. However, it will bring a swath of up to a few inches of snow from near Denver to northeastern South Dakota Monday night.

    During the Day Tuesday, a zone of moderate snow will develop over northern Minnesota to part of northwestern Ontario.


    A wintry mix of snow and ice is forecast for portions of north-central Nebraska to central Minnesota, northern Wisconsin to Upper Michigan.

    A mix of sleet and freezing rain is forecast to change to snow Tuesday in Minneapolis.


    In the wake of the main storm, pockets of heavy snow will continue over portions of the Great Basin and the central and northern Rockies. The Wasatch, Colorado Rockies, Blue Mountains and Bitterroots will receive the heaviest amount of snow reaching a foot or more in some locations Monday night through Tuesday.


    The snow marks the early stages of a push of colder air. Arctic air will join in over the northern Plains later Tuesday and Wednesday. The frigid air will erase the building warmth from the Midwest to the Northeast later in the week.
