will bring heavy snow to most areas overnight. Snow will continue
to rapidly spread across all of the Northland this evening, with
heavy snow in most areas through the overnight hours. Very heavy
snowfall rates up to 2 inches per hour are expected for a several
hour period overnight, resulting in dangerous travel conditions
with snow and ice covered roads, and very low visibility.

forecasts, and social media information from the National Weather
Service for additional details on Winter Storm Warnings and
Advisories that are in effect for the entire area through Sunday

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Snow will rapidly diminish to flurries from southwest to
northeast Sunday morning, leaving behind storm total snow amounts
between 6 and 12 inches in most areas across the Northland.

There is another chance of snow during the Wednesday to Thursday
time period of the upcoming week, but at this time, this does not
appear to be a major snowstorm for the Northland.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Snow spotters are requested to report their snowfall measurements
to the National Weather Service tonight and Sunday morning.
