NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LA CROSSE WI
355 AM CST MON FEB 8 2016

AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WAS LOCATED OVER UPPER MICHIGAN THIS
MORNING. LIGHT SNOW ASSOCIATED WITH THE LOW WAS FALLING OVER A
GOOD SHARE OF MINNESOTA...IOWA AND WISCONSIN. STRONG WINDS WERE
CREATING BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW OVER THE WESTERN HALVES OF
MINNESOTA AND IOWA WHERE BLIZZARD WARNINGS REMAINED IN EFFECT.
FARTHER EAST...THE WINDS WERE NOT AS STRONG AND THERE WAS LESS
BLOWING AND DRIFTING OCCURRING. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES REMAIN
IN EFFECT FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST MINNESOTA AND NORTHEAST IOWA.

THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE SLOWLY SOUTHEAST TO BE OVER
LAKE HURON BY LATE IN THE DAY. THIS WILL ALLOW THE LIGHT SNOW TO
CONTINUE FOR MUCH OF THE DAY WITH JUST SOME MINOR ACCUMULATIONS.
THE WINDS WILL DIMINISH THROUGH THE AFTERNOON ALLOWING THE
BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW TO COME TO AN END. IT WILL BE COOLER
WITH HIGHS IN THE TEENS AND 20S.

THE LIGHT SNOW WILL END TONIGHT ACROSS MUCH OF MINNESOTA AND IOWA
WHILE CONTINUING OVER WISCONSIN. THIS WILL OCCUR AS HIGH PRESSURE
STARTS TO BUILD IN FROM CANADA SLOWLY PUSHING THE AREA OF LOW
PRESSURE FARTHER AWAY FROM THE REGION. LOWS TONIGHT ARE EXPECTED
TO BE IN THE SINGLE DIGITS BELOW ZERO ACROSS NORTHERN MINNESOTA
WITH SINGLE DIGITS AND TEENS ABOVE ZERO ELSEWHERE.
