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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Freezing drizzle is possible across parts of northeast Minnesota
and northwest Wisconsin this morning. Expect little to no
accumulation, but it may be just enough glazing to a cause
slippery conditions on the roads until temperatures sufficiently
warm up today to melt any icing.

A round of significant winter weather, including freezing rain
and snow, is headed for the Northland. Snow will spread through
northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin from the northwest
tonight through Thursday, bringing widespread snowfall of 3 to 6
inches. Some areas will get light freezing rain tonight prior to
the snow, possibly setting up a glaze of ice on roads prior to
adding snow to the roads. Temperatures will plummet overnight into
Thursday, and gusty northwest winds will accompany the influx of
cold air. Expect periods of low visibility because of the winds
accompanying the snow and blowing snow in open areas. Travel
conditions will be particularly difficult Thursday morning during
the height of this storm. The snow should primarily dissipate by
the middle of Thursday afternoon, but there will be lingering lake
effect snow downwind of Lake Superior into northern Wisconsin
into Thursday evening. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued
for the region for tonight and Thursday. Please read the latest
winter weather messages for additional information.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Snow and gusty winds will continue across northeast Minnesota and
northwest Wisconsin Thursday morning, and the snow will taper off
from the northwest through the day. The snow will linger longest
downwind of Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin, and will not
taper off until Thursday evening. Winter Weather Advisories have
been issued for the region Thursday. Please read the latest winter
weather messages for additional information.

Arctic air returns to the region Thursday night and lingers
through the weekend and into next week. Wind Chill Advisories
will likely be needed for much of the Northland.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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.
