There will be no rest for the snow weary from the Midwest to East Coast as yet another quick-moving system threatens to lay down a swath of several inches of snow from the Upper Midwest to the Northeast on Monday through Tuesday.
An onslaught of winter storms has buried much of the Northeast over the past few weeks. While this upcoming storm is not expected to be an historic event, it can snarl travel, resulting in more flight delays in a winter full of them already.
Residents in Minneapolis, Minn., will contend with snow-covered roads on Monday, while an icy mix in Des Moines, Iowa, will create slick and hazardous driving conditions.
Winter weather will extend through the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley on Monday, and a surge of milder air should allow precipitation to remain mainly rain south of the Ohio River.
The heaviest snow on Monday is expected to fall in Wisconsin, northern Illinois and Michigan, where some locations may receive a half of a foot. Lengthy travel delays are likely in Chicago, especially during the typically busy late-day commute.
Travel across the region on Monday will be slowed by snow, including I-39, I-75, I-80, I-90, and I-96.

Risk of Falls, Accidents to Continue Well After Snowstorms Depart
The Northeast will feel the impacts of the storm on Monday night and Tuesday. Shovels and plows will be needed again in many areas.
Flight delays are anticipated for many major hubs including Chicago, Detroit, Mich., Boston and the three major airports around New York City.
Interstates 76, 80, 81, 90, 95 and 99 will turn slick for a time on Tuesday.
The snow could once again force administrators to delay or cancel school, adding to the growing list of school cancellations this winter.
While the danger of more roofs collapsing is already high following the rounds of snow across the Northeast, the impending snow will only further heighten the risk.
Slippery sidewalks will once again be a concern as the snow falls and with cold nights and milder days in the wake of the snow, icy patches will develop.
For those in search of warmth, a brief break from the snow and cold is in store for the middle and end of the week.
