The frequency and magnitude of the storms so far have pushed seasonal snowfall to well above average with more snowy weeks of the season to go.

Expect more school and flight delays and cancellations.

Motorists are urged to allow extra time for their travels as portions of the major highways such as Interstate 29, I-35, I-39, 70, I-80, I-90 and I-94. Travel within the heaviest snow swath may grind to a halt for a time.

The first storm began over the High Plains of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and eastern Colorado during Monday night.

Snow will continue to spread northeastward through the middle of the week.

Snow will spread over northern Missouri, northwestern Illinois, Iowa, eastern Nebraska and eastern South Dakota during Tuesday night.

On Wednesday, snow will move into much of Minnesota, Wisconsin, eastern North Dakota, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the northwestern part of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.
