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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

A winter storm will start to impact portions of northwest
Wisconsin after midnight tonight bringing snowfall of an inch or

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Snow will expand and intensify across northern Wisconsin Friday
and Friday evening across, then start to diminish from west to
east Friday night into Saturday morning. There is better agreement
among the models with the track of the storm but there still
remains some uncertainty as the storm is still developing.
Northwest Wisconsin, especially Price, Ashland, Iron, and portions
of Sawyer Counties will have the best chance at seeing heavy snow
in excess of 6 inches. More uncertainty exists whether heavy snow
will affect the rest of northwest Wisconsin or adjoining areas of
Minnesota. Winter Storm Warnings and Advisories have been issued
for parts of northwest Wisconsin. For further details...please
refer to the Winter weather headline products issued by the
Duluth National Weather Service Office.

Lake effect snow showers are possible through Saturday night.
Snowbelt areas of northern Bayfield and northern Iron Counties
may receive an additional inch or two of accumulation.

Area streams and rivers will continue to rise into next week due
to snow melt and recent rainfall. The Mississippi River at Fort
Ripley is forecast to rise above flood stage with minor flooding
expected. The cool down this weekend will raise the potential for
ice jam flooding on creeks, mainstem rivers, and tributaries
across the Northland. Please refer to the river and flood
statements for further details.

There is a chance for light to moderate snowfall accumulation
Tuesday into Wednesday...but warmer temperatures may result in
snow changing over to rain at times. Overall confidence in some
precipitation Tuesday into Wednesday is high but confidence in
timing, precipitation type, and snowfall amounts is low.

Late next week a series of clippers will brings chances for light
snow across the Northland.


Snow spotters are requested to report their snowfall measurements
Friday and Saturday to the National Weather Service.
