Winter Storm Warning


... Winter Storm Warning in effect from 1 PM this afternoon to
noon CDT Thursday...

The National Weather Service in Duluth has issued a Winter Storm
Warning for heavy snow... which is in effect from 1 PM this
afternoon to noon CDT Thursday. The Winter Weather Advisory is no
longer in effect.

* Location... The Arrowhead of northeast Minnesota... including
Isabella and Grand Marais.

* Timing... snow will develop across The Arrowhead region later
this morning... and increase in coverage and intensity by this
afternoon. Blowing snow will also become likely by afternoon.

* Snow accumulations... 8 to 12 inches... especially along the
higher terrain inland from Lake Superior.

* Winds/visibility... east to northeast winds will gust to more
than 30 mph at times today through tonight. This will reduce
visibilities due to blowing snow.

* Impacts... the heavy snow and high winds could bring down
branches. Roads will become snow covered with low visibility.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow and blowing snow means the
combination of strong winds and falling and blowing snow will
cause dangerously low visibility and drifting snow. Snow and ice
covered roads... and dangerous travel conditions can be expected.
Delay travel if possible. If you must travel... use extreme
caution and allow extra time to reach your destination.
