Meanwhile, the storm will continue to bring snow to communities between northern Michigan all the way to parts of Montana.
AccuWeather meteorologist Matt Benz predicted 6 to 12 inches of snow will fall from the Dakotas to northern Michigan, and the Duluth, Minn., area will see the heaviest snowfall with up to 2 feet.
The storms will bring ice and a wintry mix to parts of Iowa and northern Missouri all the way to northern New York, New England and Maine by Tuesday and early Wednesday, according to AccuWeather.
A second storm is expected to hit further south and east than the first storm due to cold air being pulled southward by Wednesday, AccuWeather meteorologists added.
