This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of eastern North
Dakota, west central and northwest Minnesota.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong north winds, with gusts up to 55 mph, will follow the passage
of a cold front Wednesday morning. There is a low potential for wind

becoming snow. Any stronger snow showers combined with the winds may
limit visibility.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of western Upper
Michigan and central Upper Michigan.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Occasional white-out conditions due to falling and blowing snow, and
additional accumulating snow expected through today and will lead

east, hazardous travel will still be possible with light snow
accumulations through today. See the latest Winter Weather Message

Large waves along the Lake Superior shoreline in Alger county will
continue through the mid morning hours. This will lead to minor
beach erosion and lakeshore flooding. See the latest Lakeshore

Accumulating lake effect snow is possible in the northeast wind
snow belts on Wednesday afternoon and evening. Additional accumulating
lake effect snow is on the way through the end of the week.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north-central and northeast
Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Lake-effect snow showers will continue in parts of Vilas County
today, but less than an inch of additional snowfall is expected.

A Wind Advisory remains in effect for Door County this morning. Wind
gusts around 45 mph are possible, especially over the northern part
of the county.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Hazardous travel conditions are likely late tonight into Wednesday
as a clipper system brings snow to the area. The system now looks
to be stronger than earlier expected. It could produce 3 to 5 inches
to much of the region. Locally higher amounts are possible near Lake
Michigan due to lake enhancement.

Cold northwest wind behind the system should generate more lake-
effect snow showers for north-central Wisconsin Wednesday night
into Thursday morning.

Hazardous travel is possible Saturday into Saturday night as another
clipper system brings light snow to the region. Lake effect snow
showers are possible at times across far north- central Wisconsin
from Friday through the weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters are requested to report peak wind gusts this morning.
