349 AM CST Wed Feb 22 2017

...Winter Storm Moves In Thursday Night...

.Snow...rain...and wind will accompany a winter storm slated to
drive across the region Thursday night through Friday night.

The precipitation will start out as rain Thursday evening...
transitioning to snow or a rain-snow mix later Thursday night,
continuing through Friday. Snow is expected Friday night. A brief
period of freezing drizzle also possible late Thursday night into
Friday morning.

Current indications would bring 4 to 8 inches...locally
higher...to locations along and north of an Austin to Winona
Minnesota...to Black River Falls Wisconsin line. Light icing
possible if freezing drizzle develops.

Winds become strong and gusty Friday night. Blowing and drifting
snow could become a concern in open and unsheltered areas.

While confidence is high that this storm will produce significant
amounts of snow, where that ultimately falls is not certain. A
small shift in the storm track will have large impacts on what
falls where, and how much.

Keep up on the latest forecasts and prepare now for this winter
storm...especially if you have travel plans.

414 AM CST Wed Feb 22 2017

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Runoff from snow melt and a recent rain will continue to
produce minor flooding along some rivers over central Wisconsin,
and slowly rising rivers over north central Wisconsin and
far northeast Wisconsin. These conditions will continue to
produce ice breakup or make ice conditions unstable on area
rivers, lakes, and reservoirs. Monitor local ice conditions and
consider securing and protecting equipment, and removing ice
shacks. Colder but closer to normal temperatures will be arriving
later this week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

A strong low pressure system will bring wintry precipitation to
the area from Thursday night through Saturday. This system has the
potential to bring several inches of accumulating snow to north-
central and northeast Wisconsin. The best chance for heavy snow
appears to be north of a line from Wausaukee to Marshfield. Areas
south of this line have an increased chance for a wintry mix of
snow, sleet, and freezing rain. The exact track of the low will
determine where the swath of heavy snow will end up falling,
therefore future forecasts should be closely monitored.
