Snowstorm likely over the Northcentral United States

US Snowstorm

Snowfall is likely to occur over the Northcentral United States around Sunday night and continuing until Tuesday.

Several areas that are still reeling under the Christmas Day Blizzard are expected to witness snowstorm during the first days of 2017.

A storm is expected to emerge over the Rockies which will further strengthen, strong enough to shovel and plow in the western region.

The exact track of the storm will determine where the heaviest snow will fall.

The most likely area to experience the highest snow from this storm will extend from North Dakota to Northern Minnesota and parts of Northwest Ontario.

The snow will cause slick roads leading to travel disruptions. Roads could become snow packed due to heaps of snow.

Strong winds may cause blowing and drifting of snow and also poorvisibility in parts of the Northern Plains.

A northward surge of mild air following the storm will give some spells of rain from Chicago to Detroit during Monday. The return of colder air may produce snow but for a short period across these aforementioned areas on Tuesday or Tuesday night.

Arctic air will sweep across much of the Lower 48 from the middle to the latter part of this week.
