It seems every week brings news of another storm turning roads into collision courses and blanketing neighborhoods in heavy snow.

Melisa Raney tells us about the latest winter storm headed toward the Midwest.

States in the Midwest are still cleaning up after storms last week, and now they're preparing for another winter storm.

"Last week was practice. This is the real deal," says John Prijic, of the Department of Public Works in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The National Weather Service predicts a band of heavy snow to hit areas from Minneapolis to Chicago Tuesday and Tuesday night.

This prompted several snowbirds in Chicago to fly the coop.

"Getting out ahead of the weather, we're gonna fly out to San Diego and beat the snow," says airline passenger Tim Courtney.

Those left behind, stocked up at grocery and hardware stores.

Some parts could see around a foot of snow this go-round.

"It's been a mild winter, so gotta get prepared, but winter's almost over. This should be it right?" asked a Chicago resident.

And some are choosing to look on the bright side.

"When there's snow falling from the sky cab drivers see dollar signs, it's extremely good for business," says cab driver Chey Eisenman.

The National Weather Service reports the Washington and Baltimore metro area may also see some snow mixed with rain.
