Looks like snowfall of up to six inches overnight tonight

MEADVILLE — AccuWeather.com report there will be no rest for the snow weary from the Midwest to East Coast as yet another quick-moving system threatens to lay down a swath of several inches of snow from the Upper Midwest to the Northeast on Monday through Tuesday.

"Even though the storm is forecast to move quickly, it will bring a moderate amount of snow or wintry mix to many communities from the Upper Midwest to the Northeast," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said, "In most cases, the storm will last six hours or less, but a few locations can receive just as many inches of snow."

An onslaught of winter storms has buried much of the Northeast over the past few weeks. While this upcoming storm is not expected to be an historic event, it can snarl travel, resulting in more flight delays in a winter already full of them.

Residents in Minneapolis will contend with snow-covered roads on Monday, while an icy mix in Des Moines, Iowa, will create slick and hazardous driving conditions.

Winter weather will extend through the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley on Monday, and a surge of milder air should allow precipitation to remain mainly rain south of the Ohio River.

The heaviest snow on Monday is expected to fall in Wisconsin, northern Illinois and Michigan, where some locations may receive a half of a foot. Lengthy travel delays are likely in Chicago, especially during the typically busy late-day commute.

Travel across the region on Monday will be slowed by snow, including I-39, I-75, I-80, I-90 and I-96.

The Northeast will feel the impacts of the storm on Monday night and Tuesday. Shovels and plows will be needed again in many areas.

The quick-hitting snowstorm has the potential to catch motorists by surprise.
