Another storm to keep chilly air in place across northern Plains through midweek

Following the potent snowstorm and blizzard conditions just a few days ago, another storm will keep the November-like chill in the region into Wednesday.

The last storm brought more than two feet of snow across parts of the Dakotas and caused chaos for travelers by air and along interstates 90 and 15.

The storm will continue to weaken and move northward into Canada through Monday, allowing for a brief rise in temperatures for some in the Plains.

By being further removed from the storm and on the southern side of the jet stream, cities like Rapid City, South Dakota; Omaha, Nebraska; and Des Moines, Iowa, will all warm up noticeably on Monday.

After being stuck in the 30s and 40s last Friday, afternoon highs on Monday in these cities will reach into the lower to middle 60s, which is within a few degrees of normal for the middle of October.

The next storm, which began taking shape in western Canada on Sunday, will trek through the northern Plains and Upper Midwest on Monday night and Tuesday.

Unlike the last storm, significant snow accumulation is not expected, although there could be a little light snow for some.

"A cold rain, gusty winds and even some wet snowflakes will be in store for portions of the Upper Midwest on Tuesday, lingering into early on Wednesday," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Brandon Buckingham.

Snowflakes will be most likely to mix in across northern Minnesota during the day on Tuesday, but there could be some snowflakes mixing in across northern Michigan and Wisconsin Tuesday night.

"In what has been a difficult year already for farmers across the Midwest, early-season snow and well below-average temperatures aren't providing much help during the harvest," said Buckingham.

The cold air filtering in along with the storm could cause any wet areas to rapidly freeze up, leading to areas of black ice. Motorists and those on foot should be on the lookout for these slippery spots, even if it only rained in their area.

Farther east, temperatures are likely to peak on Tuesday before the chilly air moves in Wednesday.

"Temperatures will rebound briefly into the lower 60s on Tuesday for places like Chicago and Detroit, but the warmer temperatures will be accompanied by showery weather," Buckingham added.

By Wednesday, the wet weather will shift to the Northeast, but leave behind November-like temperatures for the Great Lakes region.

The late-autumn weather is likely to hold through the middle of the week, before a high pressure pushes a different air mass into the area late this week.

"This should bring more seasonable conditions by late in the week," said Buckingham.
