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

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight

Late tonight there is a chance for freezing drizzle across parts
of the Northland. This may cause any untreated and elevated
surfaces to become slick.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

A winter storm is forecast to move across the region late
Wednesday afternoon through Thursday. Moderate to heavy snow will
affect portions of northern Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin,
along with a window of a wintry mix of drizzle/freezing drizzle,
sleet, or rain/freezing rain at the onset of this storm. There is
still some uncertainty regarding precipitation types and snow
amounts, so a Winter Storm Watch remains in effect for most of the
Northland. Snow accumulations between 4 to 7 inches will be
possible, especially over east-central Minnesota and northwest
Wisconsin. Some blowing and drifting snow will also be possible
with this system, especially over the Brainerd Lakes area. Travel
conditions may become difficult Wednesday evening and continue
through Thursday as this storm moves across the area. Stay tuned
to later forecasts for updates.

Much colder air will move in behind the winter storms and Wind
Chill Advisories may be needed for parts of the area Thursday
night into early next week.

.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.
