Winter Weather Alerts remain through this afternoon for far eastern Minnesota through Wisconsin and into the UP of Michigan. We could see on the highest extend up to 6-9″ of snow.


From Sunday morning into the early afternoon the light to moderate snow is expected to pivot through Northern Wisconsin into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

A trailing trough in the upper-levels could bring another quick round of mostly light snow to the Upper Midwest Sunday night into Monday morning.


We have already seen between 7-9″ from South Dakota through Minnesota so far.

A stripe of moderate snow is expected across the region under winter alerts. On the lower end, areas on the cusp of heavier snow will receive 1-3 inches, while most locations in the dark blue or purple should expect between 3-9 inches.
