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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A fast moving winter storm is affecting the area this morning,
with snow falling over nearly all the area. The snow will be heavy
at times, with snowfall rates of up to an inch per hour. The snow
has begun diminishing from southwest to northeast, and should end
for most if not all areas by noon today. A Winter Weather
Advisory remains in effect for most of the area, with a Winter
Storm Warning on the North Shore of Lake Superior. See the latest
Winter Weather Message for detailed information.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Another winter storm is on track to move through the region
Saturday night and Sunday. A wide swath of more than 6 inches of
snow is forecast from central Minnesota and west-central Wisconsin
northeast into northwest Wisconsin and northeast Minnesota, with
lower totals in portions of north-central Minnesota. While there
is still some uncertainty in storm track, which could shift the
axis of heaviest snow, overall confidence in a strong storm system
has increased. Winter Storm Watches remain in effect from
Saturday evening through Sunday morning. Anyone with travel plans
this weekend are encouraged to keep up with the latest forecasts.


Snow spotters are requested to report precipitation type, and
measurements of snow or ice accumulations to the National Weather
Service. Spotters and the public can also report precipitation
type with the free M-PING smartphone app.
