"Areas north of I-80 and especially Highway 30 are likely to see 6" or more of snow.
Much of the region- including Lac Qui Parle, Swift, Chippewa, Kandiyohi, Yellow Medicine, Renville and Redwood counties-is blanketed with snow Sunday afternoon, under a winter storm warning through 7 a.m. Monday.
Total accumulation is anticipated to be between 8 and 16 inches of snow by Wednesday night.
A Winter Storm Warning for Heavy Snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring.
Winter isn't over quite yet in Central New York. Snow will begin earlier today in the areas to the west, spreading into our western portions later this evening - overspreading Chicago and northwestern in later tonight.
The heaviest snowfall and strongest winds are expected during the day Tuesday, and things are expected to taper off Tuesday night into Wednesday.
The snow could make for a slick evening commute on Monday and a potentially unsafe one on Tuesday morning, with possible whiteout conditions. Wind gusts of 35 to 50 miles per hour are possible.
A 90 percent chance of snow is predicted on Tuesday and into Tuesday night, but no snowfall amounts have been predicted. Widespread, heavy wet snow and gusty winds will make conditions very hazardous for travel. "The Watch is still in effect with a possible 5" or more in the Watch area. If it stays snow, Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Morris and Hudson counties all are in the 12- to 18-inch range on the National Weather Service maps.
The NWS also updated its Winter Storm Warning for Orange, Putnam, Rockland and northern Westchester counties.
