Statement as of 3:37 PM CDT on March 08, 2009

... Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Tuesday afternoon
through Wednesday afternoon...

A major winter storm system will develop over the Central Plains
Monday night. The intensifying storm will move toward the western
Great Lakes Tuesday... spreading locally heavy snow and very
strong winds across a large part of the Northland. Precipitation
type may be mixed across northwest Wisconsin initially. Arctic
air will sweep rapidly across the region late Tuesday and Tuesday
night. Strong winds will be accompanied by temperatures falling
below zero by Wednesday morning. Considerable drifting and
blowing snow is likely.

This system has the potential to produce a significant impact on
residents of the Northland. Although the exact storm track is not
certain at this time... an area of snowfall in excess of 12 inches
may occur along with wind gusts in excess of 50 mph. Blizzard
conditions may develop depending on the strength of the wind and
snowfall intensity.

Ahead of the storm... areas of light snow and freezing drizzle will
be possible Monday through Monday night... before the major storm
hits on Tuesday.

If travel is planned late Monday... Tuesday... and early Wednesday
please monitor the latest winter weather messages from this

A Winter Storm Watch means there is the potential for significant
accumulation of heavy snow that may impact travel and Commerce.
You are encouraged to stay current with the latest weather
information regarding this developing winter storm via local
television... radio... the internet... or NOAA Weather Radio.

We'll see how correct they are.

Honestly...I hope we have a good storm. One last hurrah before the spring thaw!
There is always a storm in April, so we are far from being in the clear.

And for those ice nuts-

"Very strong winds
along the lake are expected. This may push considerable ice onto
the shore."
Hopefully that ice will be there when I get back.

Just as long as there are people outside in it looking miserable.
