I love a forecast that begins with the word snow. We had our cold weather last week and two days off of school. They called them Snow Days but they were really just Cold Days. With thermometers holding steady at twenty below and windchills in the negative 50’s the school administration made a wise decision to cancel school, twice. Maybe this forecast will bring us more than what they expect and we’ll have another real Snow Day…

NORTHEAST MINNESOTA AND ALL OF NORTHWEST WISCONSIN…CREATING
HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS THROUGH LATE EVENING.

NORTHWEST WISCONSIN…ESPECIALLY EAST OF A LINE FROM SARONA…TO
