...HEAVY SNOW POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY...

A POWERFUL STORM SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO DEVELOP OVER THE LOWER
MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AND LIFT NORTH INTO THE GREAT LAKES REGION ON
WEDNESDAY. THERE ARE STILL UNCERTAINTIES REGARDING THE EXACT
TRACK AND INTENSITY OF THIS STORM...HOWEVER THERE IS GROWING
CONFIDENCE THAT PORTIONS OF THE REGION COULD SEE A PERIOD OF
HEAVY WET ACCUMULATING SNOW WEDNESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY EVENING.
THIS STORM IS STILL IN THE DEVELOPING STAGES AND ANY SMALL
DEVIATIONS IN THE FORECAST TRACK AND INTENSITY COULD HAVE MAJOR
IMPACTS ON THE THREAT OF SNOW.

FOR THOSE WITH HOLIDAY TRAVEL PLANS ON WEDNESDAY...PLEASE BE AWARE
THAT THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR VERY HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS.
PLEASE KEEP ABREAST OF LATER FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS ON THIS
DEVELOPING STORM SYSTEM FOR UPDATES.
