Strong winds, flurries and scattered snow will continue across the Duluth and Carlton county area this morning, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow showers will last 15-30 minutes, dropping up to a quarter inch of new snow in some places. Winds gusting to 30 mph will cause some drifting and blowing snow.

The winter storm warning will last until 8 p.m. for Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland and Iron counties.

In northern Wisconsin, bands of snow moving inland from Lake Superior will reduce visibility in areas. Some areas could see snow falling at the rate of one to two inches an hour.

"There is still some pretty significant lake effect snow," National Weather Service meteorologist Tom Lonka said this morning. "We still have winter storm warnings in affect for them."
