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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

A winter storm system will affect northeast Minnesota and
northwest Wisconsin tonight and Wednesday, bringing significant
freezing rain to parts of the region, as well as periods of sleet
and snow. Rain will lift into and develop over the Northland
tonight, and begin to transition to freezing rain, sleet, and snow
as cold air begins to work its way into the Northland from Canada.
Gusty northerly winds will develop across the region. Eastern
parts of the Minnesota Arrowhead will likely get substantial icing
from the freezing rain, resulting in a full- fledged ice storm
with about a quarter to as much as three quarters of an inch of
icing. An Ice Storm Warning is in effect for parts of the
Minnesota Arrowhead tonight and Wednesday, primarily for icing
over Cook County. Other parts of the Northland will see much less
amounts of freezing rain, sleet, and snow, and Winter Weather
Advisories are in effect for tonight and Wednesday. Please read
the latest Winter Weather Messages for more information on this
storm.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

A winter storm will continue to affect the Northland Wednesday,
with some of the worst conditions of the storm occurring in the
morning. This is especially true for freezing rain in the
Arrowhead. An Ice Storm Warning is in effect for parts of the
Minnesota Arrowhead, mainly for the icing threat to Cook County,
through Wednesday. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for
other parts of the Northland through Wednesday. Please read the
latest Winter Weather Messages for more information.

Another major storm system could affect the Northland on Sunday
and Monday. This system has the potential to bring several inches
of snow, along with possible icing. While it is still too early to
forecast specific amounts, this is one storm system that will
need to be watched closely. If you have travel plans over the
weekend, please monitor the latest forecasts throughout the week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Snow spotters are requested to report precipitation type...and
measurements of snow or ice accumulations Today and Tonight to
the National Weather Service. Spotters and the public can also
report precipitation type with the free M-PING smartphone app.
