Updated Storm Predictions for Winter Storm Warning 02-20-14

Another winter storm is beginning to move into the Twin Ports region, but this storm could bring a larger amount of heavier snow than what we saw on Monday. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for all of Eastern Minnesota and all of Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan. The warning is in effect now, and remains in effect until noon Friday.

 

This particular winter storm will could bring 10-14 or more inches of snow to the Twin Ports, with Northwestern Wisconsin expected to see 15-20 inches. This snow is likely to be of the sticky, heavy variety and will be accompanied by windy conditions, with gusts up to 40 mph. The combination of heavy snowfall and windy conditions will make for low visibility and road conditions that will be difficult to dangerous for travel.

The timetable on snowfall amounts is as follows for the Twin Ports:

  • 12:00 pm – 03:00 pm Thursday: Light snow begins (1-2 inches possible)
  • 03:00 pm – 06:00 pm Thursday: Snow intensity increases (2-4 inches possible)
  • 06:00 pm Thursday – 06:00 am Friday: Moderate to heavy snowfall, up to an inch an hour at times between 06:00 pm and midnight (5-8 inches possible)
  • 06:00 am – 09:00 am Friday: Snow intensity decreases, sustained gusty wind leads to blowing and drifting snow (1-3 inches of additional snow possible)
  • 09:00 am – Noon Friday: Snow tapers off – flurries and colder/windy conditions set in (Trace-2 inches of snow possible)
