A weather system that brought severe storms over the weekend is bringing blizzard conditions to parts of the Upper Midwest to start the workweek.
A cold front swept through the country’s eastern half and produced a plethora of weather events Sunday, including rain and severe storms.
Many communities that saw record heat to end the workweek will be the recipients of precipitation as the front continues to move east.
Winter weather alerts, including Blizzard Warnings, have been posted for the Upper Midwest, as some areas could see more than a foot of snow through Monday evening.
Who is seeing snow?
Falling temperatures throughout the day will help many communities in the Upper Midwest fall to near freezing and see either freezing rain or snow.
Cities like Chicago and points northward will all see a good chance that frozen precipitation during the start of the workweek.
Forecast models show Minneapolis could get around 3 inches of snow while communities in northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan could see the brunt of the winter weather with more than a foot possible.
For most of the Midwest, the snow event will be considered a nuisance with only minor travel delays. For communities along Lake Superior, major travel disruptions are expected due to the heavier snow.
