MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Latest on winter storm sweeping across Upper Midwest (all times local):

Police in Sioux Falls say a man found dead under a bridge may have died from the frigid weather.

Police spokesman Officer Sam Clemens says the man was discovered in downtown Sioux Falls just before 7 a.m. Tuesday. The name of the man has not been released.

Clemens says police believe the man likely died from exposure to the cold, but an autopsy will be needed to verify that. The Argus Leader reports there was no sign of foul play.

The National Weather Service says the temperature in Sioux Falls was 12 degrees (minus 11 Celsius) around the time the man was found.

Most Wisconsin counties are under a winter storm warning as heavy snow accumulates in the Badger State.

Seven to 12 inches of snow is expected as plows try to keep up with the fresh snow Tuesday. Schools across the state are taking the day off, including the districts of Milwaukee, La Crosse, Wausau, Madison and Waukesha.

The National Weather Service says wind gusts of up to 30 mph are reducing visibility and creating dangerous travel conditions for commuters who decide to venture out.

The latest storm is expected to dump 3 to 5 inches of snow in the Twin Cities. In North Dakota, 16 head of cattle were killed when a semi driver hauling the livestock was blinded by blowing snow from a passing truck, hit an embankment and rolled over Monday afternoon.
