Another round of accumulating snow forecast for Northland today into Tuesday
Forum News Service
Another round of accumulating snow is expected across the Northland from today into Tuesday, in the wake of a storm that dropped more than a foot of snow on parts of the region on Sunday.
The new storm system is expected to produce a widespread snowfall of 3 to 6 inches across the region, the National Weather Service reported. Higher snowfall totals are possible along the South Shore of Lake Superior. Winter weather advisories are in effect for the entire region.
The snow will begin across Northwestern Wisconsin this morning, and move into Northeastern Minnesota this afternoon and evening. The heaviest snowfall is expected from this evening into Tuesday morning, the Weather Service reported — potentially causing a difficult commute to work and school on Tuesday.
There may also be some freezing drizzle mixed in with the snow, particularly across Northwestern Wisconsin. All of the precipitation is expected to end from southwest to northeast across the region on Tuesday afternoon and evening.
