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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A wintry mix will gradually transition to all snow from west to
east across the Northland today. Most areas will see 2 to 5 inches
of snow, but a bit higher amounts are expected from the western
Iron Range northeastward to the international border. Higher
amounts are also expected in areas of northern Wisconsin.
Temperatures will fall throughout the day, as arctic high pressure
builds in from the west. This system will also cause strong
northwest winds, with areas of blowing and drifting snow. Winter
Weather Advisories remain in effect for most areas today, with a
Winter Storm Warning for portions of northern Wisconsin, and also
for portions of northeast Minnesota. Please see the latest Winter
Weather Message issued by our office for detailed information
regarding specific areas. Tonight, the focus will shift to the
potential for dangerous wind chills. Wind chill advisories or
warnings will likely be needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Bitterly cold wind chills will continue on Friday, and wind chill
advisories or warnings will likely be needed.

Arctic air will linger through the weekend and into next week.
Wind chills of 20 to 35 below zero are expected most mornings
through Tuesday. A few locations may experience wind chills
around 40 below Monday morning. Wind chill advisories or warnings
will likely be needed.

A fast-moving area of low pressure will bring a quick burst of
snow to the Northland Sunday and Sunday evening with 1 to 3
inches of accumulation anticipated.


Snow spotters are requested to report precipitation type, and
measurements of snow or ice accumulations to the National
