A snowstorm that blanketed a large part of the West to start the week will bring a winterlike scene across the Plains and Upper Midwest into the middle of the week.
The storm will track from eastern Colorado to Minnesota spanning Tuesday into Wednesday.
In many areas east of the Rockies, including the city of Denver, the snow began on Monday night and will last into Tuesday night.
Enough snow will fall to make travel along portions of interstates 25, 70, 80, 90 and 94 difficult. However, motorists will encounter snow and slippery conditions as the storm progresses.
Steadier snow will reach the Upper Midwest Tuesday night into Wednesday.

A powerful storm swept the U.S. Plains Monday night into Tuesday spawning multiple tornadoes from Texas to Nebraska.
The same system spread snow and blizzard conditions across Colorado, forcing major travel delays on roadways and in the air. Some areas outside of Denver recorded up to 15 inches of snow on Tuesday morning.
As the snow winds down across eastern Colorado in the afternoon, the storm will push into Kansas and Nebraska.
“Snowfall totals of 12-18 inches will be common across this region with locally higher amounts possible,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Ed Vallee said.
