338 PM CST WED DEC 17 2014

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST WISCONSIN.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT

LINGERING LAKE-EFFECT SNOW WILL END THIS EVENING ALONG THE SOUTH
SHORE. ADDITIONAL SNOWFALL OF UP TO 1 INCH IS EXPECTED. SEE THE
LATEST WINTER WEATHER MESSAGES FOR DETAILS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT AN ALBERTA CLIPPER WILL MOVE INTO THE
NORTHERN PLAINS EARLY NEXT WEEK AND THEN STALL OVER THE UPPER
MIDWEST MONDAY AND TUESDAY. THIS SYSTEM COULD RESULT IN LIGHT TO
MODERATE SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS OVER THE NORTHLAND DURING THAT
TIME.

THERE ARE GROWING CONCERNS THAT THE STALLED ALBERTA CLIPPER WILL
MERGE WITH A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT WILL LIFT FROM THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS INTO THE GREAT LAKES REGION DURING THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK. THE TWO SYSTEMS COULD MERGE INTO A POWERFUL LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM OVER THE GREAT LAKES. AT THIS TIME...IT APPEARS THE CENTER
OF THE LOW PRESSURE WILL BE NEAR OR EAST OF LAKE HURON. THE SYSTEM
COULD RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL FOR THE NORTHLAND...MORE SO
FOR THE ARROWHEAD AND NORTHWEST WISCONSIN. COLD NORTHWEST WINDS
DURING THE MIDDLE AND LATE PART OF THE WEEK COULD RESULT IN A LONG
PERIOD OF LAKE ENHANCED SNOW AND LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS OVER
NORTHWEST WISCONSIN DURING THE MIDDLE AND LATE WEEK. THIS STORM
SYSTEM COULD CONSIDERABLY IMPACT HOLIDAY TRAVEL NEXT
WEEK...ESPECIALLY AREAS FARTHER TO THE EAST IN MICHIGAN AND
WISCONSIN. PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR MORE DEVELOPMENTS ON THIS
POTENTIAL STORM SYSTEM.
