URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
244 PM CST Wed Feb 22 2017

...A Winter Storm will Likely Impact the Area from Thursday
Night through Friday Night...

.A wintry mix will affect the area from Thursday night into
Friday night.  The precipitation will start out as rain Thursday
evening...transition to a wintry mix for late Thursday night and
Friday morning...and then change over to snow for late Friday
afternoon and night.

At this time, it looks like 5 to 10 inches of snow will fall in
locations along and north of an Austin to Winona Minnesota...to
Black River Falls Wisconsin line. In addition to the snow, there
will be the potential for up a tenth of an inch of ice
accumulation.

Winds become strong and gusty Friday night. Drifting snow could
become a concern in open and unsheltered areas.

While confidence is high that this storm will produce significant
amounts of snow, where that ultimately falls is not certain. A
small shift in the storm track will have large impacts on what
falls where, and how much.

Keep up on the latest forecasts and prepare now for this winter
storm...especially if you have travel plans.
