...Dangerous Travel Through Tonight...

.A dangerous winter storm will continue to impact the Upper
Midwest through tonight with a combination of snow, wind, rain,
and ice.

As of 4 AM, heavy snow has occurred across parts of north-
central Iowa through southeast Minnesota and west central
Wisconsin with snowfall totals so far as high as 6 to 9 inches
across parts of southeast Minnesota. Farther to the south,
precipitation has remained in the form of rain or a wintry mix
into southwest Wisconsin and parts of far northeast Iowa, with
isolated thunderstorms as well. A temporary break in the heaviest
precipitation was occurring across northeast Iowa into southeast
Minnesota.

Dangerous travel will continue through today as periods of snow coupled
with strong northerly winds causing blowing and drifting of the
snow. Additional snowfall accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are
expected through tonight from north central Iowa through
southeast Minnesota and parts of western Wisconsin with 1 to 4
inches farther to the south. Storm total snowfall within the
heaviest snow band may exceed a foot.

Strong north winds with gusts of 35 to 45 mph will cause
significant blowing and drifting of the snow today and tonight
which will cause some whiteouts. This will be especially true in
open and unsheltered areas.

Expect any slush or standing water to freeze tonight into
Saturday morning.

Prepare now for this dangerous winter storm, especially if you
have travel plans.

...Dangerous Travel Through Tonight...

.A dangerous winter storm will continue to impact the Upper
Midwest through tonight with a combination of snow, wind, rain,
and ice.

As of 4 AM, heavy snow has occurred across parts of north-
central Iowa through southeast Minnesota and west central
Wisconsin with snowfall totals so far as high as 6 to 9 inches
across parts of southeast Minnesota. Farther to the south,
precipitation has remained in the form of rain or a wintry mix
into southwest Wisconsin and parts of far northeast Iowa, with
isolated thunderstorms as well. A temporary break in the heaviest
precipitation was occurring across northeast Iowa into southeast
Minnesota.

Dangerous travel will continue through today as periods of snow coupled
with strong northerly winds causing blowing and drifting of the
snow. Additional snowfall accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are
expected through tonight from north central Iowa through
southeast Minnesota and parts of western Wisconsin with 1 to 4
inches farther to the south. Storm total snowfall within the
heaviest snow band may exceed a foot.

Strong north winds with gusts of 35 to 45 mph will cause
significant blowing and drifting of the snow today and tonight
which will cause some whiteouts. This will be especially true in
open and unsheltered areas.

Expect any slush or standing water to freeze tonight into
Saturday morning.

Prepare now for this dangerous winter storm, especially if you

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow will expand across northwest Wisconsin this morning, continue
into the evening before diminishing for most areas overnight. The
highest snow amounts is still expected over Price, Iron, eastern
Ashland, and southeast Sawyer Counties diminishing quickly west of
those areas. Various advisories and warnings remain in effect.
See the latest forecast and Winter Weather Message for further
details.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Around another inch of snow is possible in the snowbelt of Iron
County on Saturday.

Snow melt and recent precipitation will continue to flow through
area streams, rivers, and tributaries. The cooler temperatures
yesterday and forecast for continued cooler temps this weekend will
create a slower runoff which is expected to decrease the overall
flood risk. The Mississippi River at Fort Ripley may experience
minor flooding late next week. The cooler air will raise the
potential for ice jam flooding across the area through the weekend.

A potential winter storm is forecast to move through the region
Monday night through early Wednesday morning. Accumulating snow is
possible from this system, but highly dependent on track and timing.
Confidence in precipitation affecting the Northland remains high,
but specifics of type and amount are less certain.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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