... Winter Storm Watch in effect from Thursday afternoon through
Friday morning...

The National Weather Service in Duluth has issued a Winter Storm
Watch for heavy snow... which is in effect from Thursday afternoon
through Friday morning.

* Location... northeastern Minnesota... including Two Harbors...
Isabella... Silver Bay... Lutsen... Grand Marais... Grand Portage
and the gunflint trail.

* Timing... noon Thursday through noon Friday.

* Snow... more than 6 inches of snow will be possible in the watch
area.

* Winds/visibility... east winds will gust to more than 20 mph.

* Impacts... driving conditions are expected to deteriorate
Thursday afternoon and Thursday night across the Minnesota
arrowhead. The snow will initially melt... especially on
roadways. However... as the day wears on there will be a
slippery and wet accumulation of snow. As the snow turns over to
mainly all snow... it will accumulate at an increased pace later
Thursday and Thursday night. Some freezing rain may also fall
for a period of time.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
