This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central

Minnesota...east central Minnesota...south central Minnesota...

southeast Minnesota...west central Minnesota...northwest

Wisconsin and west central Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Major or moderate flooding continues along some area rivers.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

The potential for a significant late season winter storm is

increasing for mid to late week. Heavy snow accumulations are

possible over most of the area late Wednesday into early Friday.

Strong winds may also result in blowing snow. Travel could be

severely impacted by Thursday.

The Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers will continue to see some areas

above flood stage through the week due to the seasonal snow melt.

However, a new surge of water into the river system is expected

after the upcoming storm, and many sites may potentially reach flood

stage as a result. The Minnesota River and tributaries have the

greatest potential to rise to major flood stage.

Toward the Twin Cities some projections have as much as 29-36 inches possible with this storm.

 

This is the latest from the National Weather Service in La Crosse WI.
