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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A winter storm system will affect northeast Minnesota and
northwest Wisconsin today and tonight, bringing significant
freezing rain to parts of the region, as well as periods of sleet
and snow. A wintry mixture of freezing rain, sleet, snow and rain
has developed over the area overnight, and is expected to continue
today, even as more cold air moves into the area from Canada. Gusty
northerly winds will develop across the region. Eastern parts of
the Minnesota Arrowhead will likely get substantial icing from the
freezing rain, resulting in a quarter to as much as three
quarters of an inch of icing. An Ice Storm Warning is in effect
for parts of the Minnesota Arrowhead today and early this evening,
primarily for icing over Cook County. Other parts of the
Northland will see less freezing rain but more sleet and snow,
and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect through today. The
threat shifts east to portions of northwest Wisconsin for tonight,
and a Winter Weather Advisory has been extended into tonight.
Please read the latest Winter Weather Messages for more
information on this storm.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Another major storm system could affect the Northland Sunday and
Monday. This system has the potential to bring several inches of
snow, along with possible icing. While it is still too early to
forecast specific amounts, this is one storm system that will need
to be watched closely. If you have travel plans over the weekend,
please monitor the latest forecasts throughout the week.


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