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

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight

A wintry mix of freezing drizzle or rain, rain, and snow will
develop across the Northland tonight but switch to snow from
northwest to southeast. Mainly just a light glaze of ice is
expected with snowfall tonight through Thursday ranging from 2 to
6 inches for most areas, with some higher amounts also possible.
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 creating 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
night. Winter Weather Advisories and Warnings have been issued for
the region for tonight and Thursday. Please read the latest
Winter Weather Messages and forecast for additional information.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Snow and gusty winds will continue across northeast Minnesota and
northwest Wisconsin Thursday, 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 late Thursday night with additional accumulation
of 1 to 3 inches Thursday night, mainly over Iron County. Winter
Weather Advisories and Warnings have been issued for the region
Thursday. Please read the latest Winter Weather Messages and
forecast for additional information.

Cold arctic air returns to the region late-week through the weekend.
Wind chill values will fall to 25 to 40 below zero which will prompt
Wind Chill Advisories and Wind Chill Warnings some nights,
especially Thursday night and Friday night.

A weak clipper will bring snow to the Northland Sunday into Sunday
night, with up to an inch or two expected. Lake effect snow will
then linger across the south shore Sunday night into Monday with
light snowfall accumulations expected.

.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.

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

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight

Very late tonight into Thursday morning north-northwest winds will
quickly increase across western Lake Superior with gale-force gusts
possible for much of the north shore. See the latest Marine Weather
Message for details on Small Craft Advisories and Gale Warnings in
effect. Waves and winds diminish Thursday night.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Strong north winds will result in building waves and dangerous
conditions for small craft across all of western Lake Superior
Thursday into Thursday night. Gale force gusts are possible for
parts of the north shore Thursday. The combination of wind waves and
cold air will also result in a risk for heavy freezing spray along
the south shore. See the latest Marine Weather Message for details
on Small Craft Advisories, Gale Warnings, and Heavy Freezing Spray
Warnings in effect. Waves and winds gradually diminish Thursday
night.
