Upper Midwest Forecast Update – Heavy Snow and Some Ice Ahead

17 Apr 2018, 4:13 pm

What seems to be a never ending parade of winter storms in the northern tier of the nation this month continues. Another storm system will affect the Upper Midwest later tonight into Wednesday. Winter Storm Warnings have been issued in parts of Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois. Snowfall accumulations may climb to near a foot from near Des Moines to Madison. A mix of sleet and freezing rain is possible along I-80.

A compact, but intense low pressure center will move into the central Plains tonight and push through the Ohio Valley Wednesday. Heavy snow will track quickly from the High Plains to the Great Lakes. Some icy mixed precipitation is likely.
