Winter seems far from over in portions of the West and it will be making a return to the Upper Midwest over the next few days. Winter Storm Warnings continue for some of the higher elevations of Montana and Wyoming for wind and snow. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued in Northern New Mexico for the potential of heavy snow. Watches are in effect around Lake Superior in Minnesota and Wisconsin for snow and ice accumulations.
Snowfall totals will climb well above a foot in the Rockies and Tetons. More than a quarter inch of ice is possible for the North Shore of Minnesota, along with several inches of snow.

An upper system moving through the mountains will continue to produce pockets of heavy snow. A low pressure center moving through the Plains will push into the Western Great Lakes, spreading snow and some ice into the Upper Midwest.
Snow and ice will continue to move through the Upper Midwest Wednesday, diminishing on Thursday. Areas of snow will continue to move through the higher elevations in the West.
