This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southeast
Minnesota, northeast Iowa, and southwest into central Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Wind chill readings around zero degrees will continue this
morning.

For late tonight, a snow band will move into the region. At this
time, it looks like up to 2 inches of snow may fall north of the
Interstate 94 corridor. However, the track and timing of this
system are uncertain.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Accumulating snow will continue along and north of the Interstate
94 corridor Wednesday morning. Some locations could see an
additional 1 to 3 inches of snow, though the exact track of the
system remains uncertain, which will impact snowfall amounts.

Elsewhere across the region, a wintry mix of snow and freezing
rain is possible on Wednesday, though the exact amounts remain
uncertain. This could potentially result in some light icing which
may impact travel.

By Wednesday afternoon and evening, northwest winds will gust
into the 25 to 40 mph range. This will make travel difficult for
high profile vehicles.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

No action is needed yet, but snow or ice reports would be
appreciated on Wednesday.
