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

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and tonight

Patchy dense fog is possible across parts of northeast Minnesota
and northwest Wisconsin after midnight tonight and Sunday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

An area of low pressure is expected to move through the western
Great Lakes region Monday and Monday night, bringing a good chance
of rain and a few thunderstorms to much of the Northland during
this time period. Widespread rainfall between a third to a half of
an inch is expected across the region, and there is the potential
for some locations to receive up to an inch of rainfall by
Tuesday morning. The rainfall, combined with rapid snowmelt, is
likely to cause rises on many area streams and rivers, and could
produce some minor flooding in low lying and other flood-prone
areas, including in cities where some storm sewer drains may still
be clogged with ice and snow.

Another large area of low pressure is forecast to move into the
Upper Midwest region Thursday and Friday. While the extended
forecast models continue to show uncertainty with respect to the
details, there is at least some potential for significant
accumulating snowfall across portions of the Northland during this
time. However, the exact timing, snowfall amounts, and placement
of any potential heavy snow area still needs to be determined as
model details become clearer over the next several days. Anyone
with travel plans across the region during the Thursday to
Saturday time frame is encouraged to stay current with the latest
weather information, and be prepared to change your plans if
confidence in a significant winter storm across the area


Skywarn spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
