Snow to Linger Across North-Central US Into Tuesday Night

In the wake of a significant snowstorm, intermittent snow and slippery travel will linger across parts of the northern Plains to the Upper Midwest into Tuesday night.
This snowstorm produced over 6 inches of snow in some locations on Monday including Mitchell and Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Sioux City, Iowa. Bridgewater, South Dakota, received 10 inches of snow from the storm with 8.6 inches falling on Valentine, Nebraska. The Minneapolis area received 2-4 inches of snow with 3.2 inches of snow covering Fargo, North Dakota.
The ongoing snow could continue to hinder back-to-work and school activities across part of the north-central United States.
While most of the accumulating snow from the storm is over, slippery travel can be expected in portions of the interstates 29, 35, 90 and 94 corridors during Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.
In some areas the slippery conditions will be the result of powdery snow and a freeze-up and in others slush.
An additional coating to an inch of snow is possible across the eastern Dakotas into portions of western Minnesota. From 1 to 3 inches of snow can fall across parts of central and northeastern Minnesota through Tuesday night.
With the exception of a couple passing snow showers, much of southeastern Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin and northern Michigan will be drier.
While the storm brought rain to Chicago and Detroit, a brief push of cold air in the wake of the storm can deliver snow showers to these cities and other areas around the Great Lakes region on Wednesday.
As chilly air and snow showers push eastward, sunshine will allow temperatures to rebound with some melting snow over the northern and central Plains on Wednesday.
