...WINTRY PRECIPITATION EXPECTED LATE THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND
FRIDAY...
.A fast-moving area of low pressure will bring a quick burst of
snow and freezing drizzle to the Northland Thursday afternoon
through early Friday afternoon. The precipitation will begin in
central Minnesota late Thursday afternoon and spread
northeastward across the Northland during the evening. A band of
heavy snow will likely develop during the pre-dawn hours of
Friday morning and lift northward through northeast Minnesota and
northwest Wisconsin, resulting in snow rates around 1 inch per
hour. Relatively warm temperatures aloft raise the potential of
freezing drizzle mixing with the snow from the pre-dawn hours of
Friday morning into the early afternoon with light icing
possible. The Friday morning commute will be slow due to snow and
ice accumulation. The system quickly moves out of the Northland
from late Friday morning through the early afternoon hours.
...WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY EVENING
THROUGH FRIDAY AFTERNOON...
* WHAT...Mixed precipitation possible. Total snow accumulations
of 3 to 5 inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze are

Minnesota.
* WHEN...From Thursday evening through Friday afternoon.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on difficult travel conditions,
including during the morning commute on Friday. Significant
