Winter Storm Warning

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Duluth MN
337 PM CDT Wed Oct 21 2020

...ANOTHER ROUND OF ACCUMULATING SNOW EXPECTED THURSDAY...

.Another round of accumulating snow is developing over the plains
to produce more heavy snow for Thursday. A strong area of low
pressure will develop out of Colorado, leading to the increased
chances of accumulating snow. There is the potential for a swath
of accumulations between 5 to 7 inches from the Brainerd Lakes
region towards Duluth. Some uncertainty remains on the southern
edge of the forecast snowfall swath as there will be a transition
to a wintry mix or all rain the further southeast you go, so
there is the potential for a shift in the location of the heavier
snowfall. Some sleet or freezing rain may mix in with the snow at
times at this transition zone.

Additionally, there may be relatively little snow accumulations
along the shoreline of Lake Superior as the lake is still rather
warm, so there may be a tight gradient in snowfall amounts along
the North Shore to the higher elevations.
