Spring snow: What you need to know Tuesday

The messy spring storm has arrived and will continue impacting the Midwest through Tuesday. Accumulating snow, wintry mix, rain, and strong winds will affect the area.

Adverse travel conditions are unfolding. Ice accumulated in parts of the North Shore, east central Minnesota, and northwest Wisconsin Tuesday morning. This has been followed by additional snow accumulation as snow became the dominant precipitation type once more from the west through the morning Tuesday.

Tuesday’s travel is the worst through the morning into the afternoon. Snowfall rates lighten up in the late afternoon and evening with snow retreating north toward the Canadian border. Additional accumulation after 7 pm Tuesday will be minimal, allowing travel conditions to improve Tuesday night and Wednesday.
