More Snow on the Way

Event: Winter Weather Advisory
Alert:
...ARCTIC COLD FRONT WILL BRING SNOW AND LAKE EFFECT SNOW TONIGHT 
INTO THURSDAY... 
 
.An Arctic cold front will pass through the Northland tonight. 
Snow continued to progress south this evening into northwest 
Wisconsin but was starting to diminish over far northern Minnesota. 
This will be the coldest air yet seen this season. The large 
lakes across the region are still relatively warm, including Lake 
Superior, Lake of the Woods, Rainy Lake, and Lake Kabetogama. The 
dramatic temperature differences between the lakes and Arctic air 
is expected to result in significant snow enhancement and lake 
effect snow showers downwind of these lakes through the night and 
into Thursday. The heaviest snowfall, up to around 10 inches, is 
expected downwind of Lake Superior along and near the higher 
terrain of the Gogebic Range in Iron County in Wisconsin. Other 
parts of northern Wisconsin near Lake Superior, and parts of 
north-central Minnesota near the Canadian border, could get up to 
several inches of snow. Expect periods of difficult travel 
conditions with this snow. 
 
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 AM CST 
THURSDAY... 
 
* WHAT...Snow and lake effect snow expected. Plan on slippery 
road conditions, including during the evening commute. Total 
snow accumulations of 3 to 5 inches across parts of northern 
Koochiching County and the northwestern corner of St. Louis 
County. There could be isolated amounts up to 6 inches in 
those areas. 
 
* WHERE...Koochiching and North St. Louis County. 
 
* WHEN...Now through 9 AM Thursday. 
 
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Be prepared for reduced visibilities at 
times. 
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
