Carlton County under winter storm watch

Lots of snow possible Wednesday into Thursday

Meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Duluth are increasingly confident that a significant winter storm will impact the region from Tuesday night into Thursday night.

Snow accumulations of 6-inches or more are likely, especially over northwest Wisconsin and Pine County, as well as from the Twin Ports east across the South Shore where snowfall of 12-inches or more is possible. Significant travel disruptions likely due to heavy snow rates and blowing snow.

The snowfall could lead to dangerous winter driving conditions. In addition, gusty winds could also produce blowing snow and reduced visibility, even whiteout conditions.

Expect cold wind chills, lowest over northern Minnesota, Tuesday night through Friday. Lakeshore flooding is possible from Two Harbors to the Twin Ports to the Apostle Islands Thursday.
