Storm warning in effect

The heaviest snow will be Monday afternoon and evening. There will be some melting on contact and the snow will compact due to its wet and heavy nature. Winds are forecast to gust up to 25 miles per hour in the James River Valley, and blowing and drifting snow is expected. But trees or power lines that were weakened by the weekend could be more susceptible to coming down by either the heavy, wet snow or wind gusts.

Not much has changed in the overall thinking of how this winter storm will play out.

WHAT.Snow and mixed precipitation expected.

WHERE.Mitchell, Floyd, Chickasaw, Fayette and Clayton Counties.

As of 3:15 p.m. Sunday, MEMA reports over 155,000 customers are still without power. Winds will pick up in the afternoon.

A weak disturbance will cross the region Saturday providing a small chance of light snow.

"Because the storm did a loop south of Long Island, that allowed those heavy snow bands to persist".

Away from the coast, June Lake has seen about 6 feet of snow over the last two days.

WHERE.Portions of west central Wisconsin and southeast Minnesota.

The National Weather Service in Boston said in a tweet that winds are likely to remain an issue through Monday and that it's monitoring for a potential nor'easter midweek. Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times. Strong winds are also expected.

A winter storm is causing headaches for both vehicle and airplane travelers in the northern Plains. Winter weather advisories continue around the warning and now includes all of southwest and south central MN, along with Rusk, Chippewa, and Eau Claire Counties in WI.

Most of the mid-Atlantic will only see rain, but New York City and cities north of it will see higher accumulations of snow.

Temperatures will be below the freezing mark overnight when the snow begins, but will rise to the mid-30s during the day Wednesday.

Snow is expected through Monday evening evening from Fargo all the way to northern IN, with more than a foot expected IN parts of Minnesota.

We will have a dry period Monday evening, before the low pressure system tracks through eastern Iowa, and the backside brings wrap around snow showers after midnight, and into Tuesday. The precipitation for this event will start as a brief rain/snow mix and then change over to primarily snow by Monday morning. "We don't have the arctic air like we had for the other storms, so temperatures will probably be in the upper 20 degrees late Tuesday night".

Stay tuned to the National Weather Service for the latest winter forecast details. In addition, some reductions to visibility are likely.

Snow. High near 36.
