This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central and
southern Minnesota...and west central Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A band of light snow will move across the area from west to east
through late this morning. Those in eastern and southern Minnesota
through western Wisconsin may receive up to an inch of snow

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Confidence is growing on having a mixed wintry precipitation event
Sunday through Tuesday. Multiple rounds of light snow and freezing
rain are expected across the coverage area, starting early Sunday
morning and continuing through midday Tuesday. The best chances
for accumulating snow will be over central Minnesota into
northwest Wisconsin, where generally 3 to 6 inches of snow can be
expected over the 3 day period. In addition, the best chances for
ice accretion will be over southern Minnesota into western
Wisconsin, where several hundredths of an inch to around a tenth
of an inch of ice can be expected over the same period. This event
has the potential to cause hazardous travel conditions along with
possible power outages. Continue to monitor updated forecasts for
additional details over the next several days.


Spotters and snowfall observers are urged to report snowfall
amounts to the National Weather Service.
