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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

An early winter storm will affect the Northland this afternoon
through tonight. Weather conditions will become dangerous this
afternoon in parts of northern Minnesota from International Falls
through Walker, and the Brainerd lakes area. Rain will turn to
snow, temperatures will fall and winds will become very strong.
All these factors will result in near blizzard conditions and
possibly icy roads. These dangerous winter conditions will
overtake the Arrowhead region on northeastern Minnesota later this
evening. The Aitkin area, the Twin Ports, Pine City and far
northwestern Wisconsin will get snow and wind also in the evening.
The rest of Wisconsin will see the changeover from rain to snow
later tonight with gusty winds.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Snow will gradually taper off to snow showers Tuesday over much
of the Northland. Lake effect snow showers are forecast over the
snowbelt areas of northwest Wisconsin for the remainder of the
week. Additional snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are possible
from Tuesday evening through early Thursday morning over portions
of Ashland and Iron Counties in Wisconsin, with lower totals
expected elsewhere in the northern Wisconsin snowbelt.


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.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Nearshore
waters of western Lake Superior.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A strong storm system will move through the region today through
Tuesday bringing strong winds to western Lake Superior. East to
northeast winds are forecast today and may create conditions
hazardous to smaller vessels for areas from the Twin Ports east
along the south shore of northwest Wisconsin. Winds will quickly
back west to northwest tonight as the storm system moves through
northeast Minnesota to northwest Ontario by Tuesday morning.
Widespread gales are likely over western Lake Superior and a few
storm-force wind gusts are possible from Port Wing to Bayfield.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Strong winds will continue Tuesday with widespread gales
expected. Occasional storm-force gusts to 50 knots are possible
off the tip of the Bayfield Peninsula through Tuesday morning.
West to northwest winds will gradually diminish through Tuesday
evening. Conditions will likely remain hazardous to smaller
vessels through Tuesday night into Wednesday.

With much colder air pouring into the region Tuesday and Tuesday
night, a period of heavy freezing spray is possible for waters
adjacent to northwest Wisconsin.
