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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong northeast winds will impact areas at the head of Lake
Superior, including Two Harbors, the Twin Ports, east towards
Bayfield and Ashland today. Winds 30 to 40 mph, with gusts of 50
mph, will be possible. This will result in difficult driving
conditions and large waves on Lake Superior, which will affect
lakeshore areas. On lakes where thick ice remains, including Lake
Superior, chunks of lake ice may be picked up by the waves and
crash onto shore, including some stretches of roads which are
adjacent to the lake. Lakeshore flooding is possible, which could
damage property and cause water on parking lots and roadways near
the lake. See the Lake Shore Flood Warning and Wind Advisory for
more details.

Moderate to heavy snow will then move into northwest Wisconsin and
adjacent areas of northeast Minnesota tonight. Northeast winds
will remain gusty overnight, which will lead to reduced
visibilities to one-half of a mile or less at times. The heaviest
snow is expected to start falling after midnight tonight. Those
with travel plans today and tonight should be prepared for
hazardous travel conditions. See the Winter Storm Warning and
Winter Weather Advisory for more details.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Moderate to heavy snowfall will continue across northwest
Wisconsin and adjacent areas of northeast Minnesota during the
day Sunday. Some lake effect snow will continue through the day
Monday along the South Shore of Lake Superior. Through Monday,
this storm system could bring between 12 to 18 inches of snow
accumulations to northwest Wisconsin, with amounts between 6 to 9
inches along the North Shore of Lake Superior.


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