1159 AM CST Thu Feb 23 2017

...Dangerous Winter Storm To Impact The Region Later Tonight
through Friday Night...Dangerous Travel Expected...

.A dangerous winter storm is taking aim on the area tonight
through Friday night. This storm will contain strong winds, heavy
snow, rain, possibly a wintry mix, and thunderstorms. All this
will impact the region tonight through Friday night. Due to
considerable snow accumulations and strong wind, there will be
significant impacts to travel for most of the area. Blizzard
warnings have been posted for portions of southeast Minnesota and
northeast Iowa while winter storm warnings and watches remain in
effect for a good portion of the rest of the area.

Rain and some snow will move in this evening with minimal impact
expected on travel or activities. Travel will then become dangerous
overnight through Friday with snow becoming heavy coupled with
strong northerly winds causing blowing and drifting of the snow.
Snow accumulations from 1 to 4 inches are expected overnight,
highest north of a Austin and Winona Minnesota to Black River
Falls Wisconsin line. Some thundersnow will also be likely, adding
to snowfall rates. Light icing could also occur if freezing
precipitation develops.

Plan on mostly snow continuing Friday through Friday night,
although a mix with rain or freezing precipitation could occur
near and south of Interstate 90 at times Friday. An additional 4
to 12 inches of snow is expected Friday through Friday night with
the highest amounts expected across southeast Minnesota into west
central Wisconsin.

Strong north winds with gusts 30 to 45 mph will cause significant
blowing and drifting of the snow Friday and Friday night which
will cause some whiteouts. This will be especially true in open
and unsheltered areas.

Expect any slush or standing water to freeze Friday night into
Saturday morning.

Confidence is high that this storm will produce significant
amounts of snow. However, even a small shift in the storm track
will have large impacts on what falls where, and how much. There
still could be some slight adjustments as to where the heavy snow
band sets up.

Be sure to keep up to date on the latest forecasts and prepare
now for this dangerous winter storm, especially if you have
travel plans.

...WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT
TO 6 AM CST SATURDAY...

* Expect a wintry mix to develop this evening, transitioning to
  all snow overnight. Snow will continue Friday into Friday night.

* Total snow accumulations of 8 to 12 inches. Snow rates up to 2
  inches an hour at times also possible in thundersnow. Light
  icing could also occur.

* Look for significant reductions in visibility at times in the
  falling snow.

* Significant blowing and drifting snow will cause near whiteouts
  at times also expected Friday through Friday night in open and
  unsheltered areas.

* Travel will be very difficult to impossible...including during
  the morning and evening commutes on Friday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A winter storm warning means significant amounts of snow...sleet
and ice are expected. Strong winds are also possible. This will
make travel very hazardous or impossible. The latest road
conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by
