This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of northeast
Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight

A major snow storm will slowly diminish over northern and
northeast Minnesota this evening, but very heavy snow will persist
across much of Lake and Cook Counties into this evening.
Storm total snowfall amounts are expected to generally range from
between 6 to 10 inches across many areas north of Highway 2, with
heavier amounts between 10 and 15 inches across the Minnesota

Please refer to the latest Winter Weather Messages, local
forecasts, and social media posts from the Duluth National Weather
Service Office for details on the current location of the
heaviest snow, and for details on winter storm warnings and
advisories that remain in effect for most of northern Minnesota
and parts of northwest Wisconsin into this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Another round of accumulating snow is likely across parts of the
Northland on Monday through Tuesday. There is still considerable
uncertainty on exact timing and placement, as well as specific
snow totals for the Monday to Tuesday night period. However, some
parts of the Northland could see several new inches of snow and
significant travel impacts. In addition, some wintry mixed
precipitation could affect portions of northwest Wisconsin to the
southeast of a line roughly from Hayward to Ironwood. Anyone with
travel plans across the region should stay tuned for future
forecast updates.


Snow spotters are requested to report their snowfall measurements
from today to the National Weather Service.
