Winter Storm Warning

Three of the three high school  baseball games scheduled for this week were cancelled due to field conditions. I wonder what will happen next week?

Winter Storm Warning
Alert:
...POWERFUL SPRING STORM BRINGS WINDS AND HEAVY SNOW TO THE 
NORTHLAND TODAY... 
 
.A strong spring snow storm will bring wet, heavy accumulating 
snow and very strong east-northeast winds, starting today in a few 
waves of heavy snow before transitioning into more typical 
light/moderate snowfall tonight. The snowfall, combined with the 
northeast winds, will lead to near-blizzard conditions in some 
spots, especially near Lake Superior including the shoreline of 
the Twin Ports. Snowfall will start slightly later than previously 
forecast and amounts have been lowered slightly, but there is 
still expected to be periods of heavy snow and very strong winds 
today creating very hazardous travel conditions. Snow may turn 
into a wintry mix at times, especially in northwest Wisconsin this 
evening where a period of freezing rain is possible before a 
transition back to all rain/snow on Friday. Very strong northeast 
winds will cause blowing snow to significantly reduce visibility. 
Travel conditions could be life- threatening for a period 
Thursday afternoon. Wind gusts will range between 40 to 50 mph 
over a portion of the forecast area, with gusts approaching 55 or 
60 mph right along Lake Superior.

one tenth of an inch expected. Winds gusting as high as 50 mph. 
 
* WHERE...Portions of northwest Wisconsin and east central, 
north central and northeast Minnesota. 
 
* WHEN...From 7 AM this morning to 1 PM CDT Friday. Conditions 
will be worst Thursday afternoon and evening.

blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. The 
hazardous conditions will impact the Thursday evening commute.
