Winter Storm Warnings and advisories continue today for most of the Northland, see prior post for an alerts map and for my snowfall forecast.

Near blizzard conditions are possible at times today along portions of the South Shore of Lake Superior including around the Bayfield and Ashland areas.

Storm and Gale Warnings remain in effect today for Lake Superior, and a Lakeshore Flood Warning continues along the South Shore of Lake Superior from the Twin Ports on to the east.

For Duluth – Winter Storm Warning until Noon today.

Snow, gusty winds and some blowing snow will continue in the Twin Ports through the morning with snow gradually tapering off during the afternoon, but it will likely keep snowing at least lightly through late this afternoon.

North winds 15 to 25 mph will cause areas of blowing snow.

Travel will be very difficult today with poor visibility at times due to falling and blowing snow.
