...Snow and Ice Late Tonight and Wednesday...

.DISCUSSION...High pressure will provide dry weather today.
High temperatures will range from the teens to mid 20s. Light
northwest winds will become west this afternoon.

From late tonight into Wednesday morning, a low pressure system
will produce 2 to 4 inches of snow north of Interstate 94.
Elsewhere, freezing rain may produce some light icing. The track
of this system is still uncertain, so the location of the snow
and ice may still change.

On Wednesday afternoon, northwest winds will gust up to 40 mph.

Due to the arrival of winter conditions and through coordination
with local Fire Weather Partners, the Fire Weather Planning
Forecasts will end for the season with this afternoon`s issuance.
You can request a Spot Forecast at any time and access graphical
fire weather forecast information at weather.gov/arx/fire.  Please
