Snow Possible Overnight Before Bigger Storm Arrives Tuesday

Snow Possible Overnight Before Bigger Storm Arrives Tuesday

A broad area of cloudiness and light freezing rain or drizzle should develop over our area out ahead of the approaching weather system from south to north and east, with the greatest threat of a prolonged period of frozen precipitation and wet snow north of Interstate-80 Monday night into Tuesday.

Over Sunday night, snow was expected to be confined to the mountains, with a "VERY BRIEF" break on Monday morning before another winter system began dropping snow in the Seattle area. Paul International Airport reported 3.7 inches and Buffalo got 3 inches.

The Midwest and Northeast will only have a little break between snow events. Severe snow drifts shut down Interstate 90 and other roads in central Washington.

Travel delays and bus cancellations are expected.

Areas north of the Forks-Seattle line could see an additional 5-8 inches of snow.

Stretches of interstates 29, 35, 80, 90 and 94 are expected to be hard and unsafe to travel on during the height of the storm.

"Snow" could be the buzzword this week, as Mid-Michigan could receive more than a foot of the white stuff this week.

In addition to snow-packed, slippery roadways, blowing and drifting snow can create whiteout conditions as winds strengthen around the storm.

But more snow was possible for the region by midweek, the report said.

"The storm can also end with snow and icy spots in both of these cities", Sosnowski said.

After two days of cold, mostly sunny weather with highs near 33 degrees, Tuesday is expected to bring a winter storm, according to the National Weather Service.

Meanwhile, enough rain may fall to aggravate the flooding situation from Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky, to the southern portions of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

Snowfall from Sunday and Monday lingered into the week as below-freezing temperatures gripped the area.

Then comes the more significant storm on Tuesday, Feb. 12.
