People in path of winter storm urged to prepare for snow

The region and nearly the entire Upper Peninsula are under a winter storm warning into Tuesday morning as a major system takes aim.

Interstate 70 between suburban and Kansas is back open.

The storm, which the Weather Channel has named Winter Storm Jaxon, dumped heavy snow over the western mountains on Saturday - good news for snow-starved ski resorts in Utah, Idaho and Montana.

The weather service in Nebraska warned "travel will be very unsafe to impossible" because of the blizzard.

The Omaha and Lincoln areas are forecast to be just outside the path of the blizzard, but the two cities aren't going to escape the effects of the storm, according to the National Weather Service. Nebraska State Patrol officials say snow could drift over the top of stranded vehicles within 5 minutes because of the strong winds. Expect blizzard or blizzard-like conditions to develop during the afternoon over Minnesota and Wisconsin as the heart of the storm moves in. Between the regions of rain and snow, there could also be a brief period of freezing rain and sleet.

The storm system will swirl away from Colorado overnight and the snow will end across the eastern plains after midnight.

Anyone who must travel on Monday is encouraged to use extreme caution and give themselves plenty of extra time.

Another quarter-inch of rain was possible through Monday before colder temperatures would switch the precipitation over to snow Monday night.
