Winter weather hazards map.
Purple=Winter Weather Advisory
*Snowfall map* (Updated at 1:29 PM CST) Total snowfall accumulations from late Tonight through Tuesday. I'm still a little concerned on how quick this system will be moving, so it may be difficult to get more than 3-4", but we shall see. The past couple of SREF model runs have been showing favorable snow growth -- dendritic growth zone...So this could lead to larger snowflakes and a more rapid accumulation of snow.
...Update on the approaching snow system...
Almost all of Northeast Minnesota and all of Northwest Wisconsin is under a *Winter Weather Advisory* More information can be found at this link: http://forecast.weather.gov/wwamap/wwatxtget.php?cwa=dlh&wwa=winter%20weather%20advisory
