Winter Storm Gemini will continue to impact portions of the Midwest and Northern New England with snow and ice through the busy holiday travel and shopping weekend. Gemini is the seventh named winter storm of the season.
The storm system bringing all this snow is also bringing a severe weather and flooding threat to parts of the East. For more on those threats, click here.

Midwest Snow Forecast
Light snow showers will linger mainly from eastern Minnesota through Wisconsin and Michigan into Sunday night and Monday with a trough of low pressure and an upper-air disturbance trailing behind Winter Storm Gemini. Additional accumulations will be light, but temperatures will be more than cold enough to cause slick conditions on all untreated pavement.
Lake-effect snow showers will develop Monday mainly over southwest Lower Michigan where there may be a focused band of heavier snowfall. Drivers in the area should use caution and watch out for sudden reductions in visibility.
A surge of warm, moist air continues to blast northward into the Northeast. While temperatures reached 70 degrees as far north as New York's Hudson Valley on Sunday, it's been a totally different story near the Canadian border.

This is because the warm, moist air has been riding over the top of subfreezing air near the surface of the earth in portions of Upstate New York, New Hampshire, northern Vermont, southern and central Maine and adjacent parts of southeast Canada. As a result, a significant ice storm has caused tree and power line damage and disruption to travel. Some lingering pockets of freezing rain are possible into Sunday night in parts of this area.
Light freezing rain or freezing drizzle may expand south into the northwest suburbs of Boston Sunday night into Monday morning as the departing low pressure system draws colder air a bit farther south.
