The surface low is expected to move east-northeastward through the
Great Lakes region Monday night and Tuesday. Heavy snow will
continue spreading north and east of the low across the Upper
Great Lakes region, where 6 to 10 inches of snow is expected
through Monday. However, additional heavy snow is likely downwind
of the Great Lakes in the cold air behind the low on Tuesday and
Wednesday, leading to total snowfall amounts of 1 to 2 feet in
some areas. Snow of 8 to 12 inches, with locally higher amounts,
is forecast for the interior Northeast on Tuesday. Farther south,
rain is expected to change to snow behind the cold front
associated with the low; 1 to 4 inches of snow is possible in
parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley, Tennessee Valley, and the
Appalachians. Additionally, this system will usher in an extremely
cold arctic airmass across much of the Northern Plains, Midwest,
and the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast. Dangerously cold and potentially
record breaking temperatures and wind chills are expected by
Tuesday and Wednesday, particularly for the Upper Midwest, where
wind chill values could be as low as 40 to 60 degrees below zero
for many locations, including Chicago and Minneapolis.

The next storm summary will be issued by the Weather Prediction
Center at 900 PM CST. Please refer to your local National Weather
Service office for additional information on this event.
