Winter Storm Jayden Will Spread Snow From Northern Plains Into Midwest, East and South; Blizzard Conditions Possible in Northern Plains

Winter Storm Jayden will track through the Plains, Midwest and East early week.
Strong winds and heavy snow could lead to blizzard conditions in the Dakotas.
Moderate to locally heavy snow is possible in parts of the Midwest into interior Northeast.
Snow showers are possible in parts of the South with the early week system.
Winter Storm Jayden will spread a swath of moderate to heavy snow from the northern Plains into the Midwest and East early next week, with snow showers also possible in parts of the South.

Jayden was named Saturday morning as there is sufficient confidence that naming population criteria (at least 2 million in a winter storm warning) was expected to be met. Winter storm warnings were issued for southeastern Minnesota and much of Wisconsin Saturday afternoon, including Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Green Bay, meeting winter storm naming criteria.

Before Jayden, an Alberta clipper system will sweep through the northern tier of the United States this weekend.

While Alberta clippers don’t typically evolve into powerful winter storms, they can produce localized bands of heavier snow and strong winds that often result in low visibility and hazardous travel conditions.

Happening Now
A clipper system is bringing snow showers to parts of the Midwest and East, as of Saturday evening.
Winter Storm Jayden is beginning to bring snow and rain to parts of the northern High Plains and southern Saskatchewan.

Winter storm watches and warnings have been in advance of Winter Storm Jayden from portions of North Dakota and South Dakota into Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, Wisconsin, far northern Illinois and Michigan, as well as for part of northern Wyoming.

Cities that are now in winter storm warnings include Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Green Bay.

In general, communities located in winter storm warnings should expect the worst winter weather, including dangerous travel conditions.

In addition, high wind warnings have been issued for the northern high plains and northern Rockies. Winds gusts up to 65 mph are possible in these locations. Travel will be dangerous and power outages are likely.

Winter Storm Jayden will move into the Midwest while amplifying its precipitation and wind in the northern Plains and northern Rockies.
Blizzard conditions are possible late Sunday in North Dakota down into eastern South Dakota. Near-blizzard conditions are possible in western Minnesota. Ground blizzard conditions are also possible in western South Dakota.
Snow is expected to develop from Montana and the Dakotas to the upper Midwest through the day before spreading into the Great Lakes overnight.
Wind gusts up to 65 mph are possible in the Dakotas with higher gusts possible in higher terrain.
Some power outages are possible from eastern Montana through the Dakotas to northern Nebraska.
A mix of snow, sleet and ice is possible on the southern edge of the precipitation.
Lingering light snow from the weekend clipper system is also possible from the interior Northeast into the central Appalachians on Sunday.

Snow from Jayden will affect areas in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions during the day.
Strong winds will continue across the Plains behind Jayden. Some blowing snow is possible in the northern Plains.
By Monday night, snow will expand into the interior Northeast, with a mix of rain and snow from parts of the Ohio Valley into the South.
A band of locally heavier snow and strong winds may develop somewhere in those areas, but the exact placement of that is uncertain this far out in time.
This system will continue pushing eastward on Tuesday, with some snow possible from the Northeast to the Tennessee Valley and Deep South before the system moves offshore.
A mix of rain and snow may develop from southern New England into parts of the southern Appalachians and South.
