Another round of snow is moving through the Upper Midwest this morning and is expected to continue into Wednesday. Temperatures have been warm enough aloft in some areas for a wintry mix of sleet and ice pellets.
With temperatures at or slightly below freezing, the messy mix is creating slippery roads.

As cold air wraps into the storm, most areas of precipitation will change over to snow. Snow totals will not be as heavy with this storm as the system last week, but heavy enough to produce travel issues. Accumulations may approach 6″ in some areas of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Upper Michigan.
The precipitation will changeover to all snow in Minnesota and Wisconsin tonight, with temperatures warm enough for all rain in Iowa. Snow will begin to push into Michigan late tonight and Wednesday.
WeatherNation will continue to provide updates on travel conditions and snow totals as the system moves eastward.
