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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Rain showers will transition to snow across east-central
Minnesota into parts of northwest Wisconsin late today into this
evening. Up to 1 inch of snowfall is possible. A few isolated
thunderstorms are also possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

A winter storm will move through the Upper Midwest Thursday night
through Saturday morning. Snow will be likely in northwest
Wisconsin and adjacent areas of central Minnesota. The exact track
of the low pressure system and snow amounts are still in
question, but there is increasing confidence in snowfall amounts
of 6 inches or more for portions of northwest Wisconsin, with a
sharp gradient to little to no snow to the northwest for portions
of northeast Minnesota. Stay tuned to the latest forecast for
details as we get closer to this event.

The Mississippi River at Fort Ripley is forecast to rise above
flood stage on Saturday with minor flooding expected, mainly in
rural areas near Fort Ripley. There have been fluctuations in the
river level due to ice action.


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.
