URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Duluth MN
950 PM CDT Sat Apr 29 2017

...LATE SEASON WINTER STORM MAY BRING SIGNIFICANT SNOW...

.A strong low pressure system is expected to take aim on the
Northland starting Sunday Night. This late winter storm is
expected to bring accumulating snow to much of northeast
Minnesota, especially in an area stretching from the Brainerd
Lakes Region, northeastward through the Iron Range and Minnesota
Arrowhead. More than 6 inches of wet snow is possible in the
watch area, along with ice accumulations of up to a tenth of an
inch. Gusty north winds will also develop across the watch area.
If you have travel plans late this weekend and early in the work
week, be sure to monitor the latest forecasts and warnings. It is
still a bit early to determine exact amounts at any locations,
but the threat definitely does exist for 6 inches of new snow or
more.
