* Snow/ice accumulations... freezing drizzle will occur through the
evening then become mixed with or change over to snow later
tonight. Ice accumulation will be up to a tenth of an inch with
snow accumulation tonight into Monday morning of 1 to 3 inches.

* Snow accumulations... potential for more than 7 inches with the
storm Monday night through Tuesday night.

* Impacts... slick roads will be possible tonight into Monday
morning... especially the roads in the higher terrain inland from
Lake Superior. Travel could be difficult with the snow from the storm
Monday night into Tuesday night due to the snow and lower
visibility.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow accumulations that may impact travel. Continue to monitor
the latest forecasts.

A Winter Weather Advisory for mixed precipitation means a mixture
of freezing drizzle and snow is expected. Some accumulation of
snow and ice are expected on untreated roads and sidewalks. Anyone
with travel plans should be prepared for slippery roads and
reduced visibility. Slow down when driving and allow for extra
stopping distance because you may lose control of your vehicle if
you try to slow down or stop quickly.
