Despite it being the official start of the astronomical spring on Tuesday, a large portion of the Upper Midwest and the Northeast will still be battling winter this week.

Snow is back in the forecast for this part of the country in the coming days as a classic Alberta clipper storm dives down from Canada.

Here is what you need to know about the latest resurgence of winter weather.

Alberta Clipper Will Bury Parts of Western Canada Before Journeying Into the U.S.

A new storm system is picking up steam in western Canada, making a move to the east before dipping down into the U.S. The storm will bring a rush of cold air as it tracks to the southeast, setting the stage for the chance of snow development to major cities such as Minneapolis and Chicago.

The system will eventually make its way into portions of the Northeast by the end of the week, bringing millions of Americans into the potential impact zone.

It has been a fairly benign winter for the north-central and northeastern portions of the country. However, the season is not quite down yet as the Alberta clipper is destined to show.

The weather maker will first usher in 1 to 2 feet of fresh snowfall for the southern tier of the Canadian Rockies, including several inches of snow for the populated city of Calgary in Alberta.
