Latest winter storm takes aim at Northwestern Wisconsin

Another in what has become a series of winter storms recently may bring more than 6 inches of new snow to Northwestern Wisconsin starting Monday night.

The entire state of Wisconsin is under a winter storm watch from Monday evening until Tuesday evening, replacing a winter weather advisory that covered many counties.

The National Weather Service has decreased forecast snow totals for Northeastern Minnesota, however, with only a 30 percent chance that Duluth, the Iron Range and most of the North Shore will see 6 inches or more. Snow is expected to begin in Duluth late Monday night.

The heaviest snow is expected to come Tuesday morning and afternoon, potentially making travel difficult across much of northern Wisconsin, the Weather Service said.

Meanwhile on Sunday, snow flew across much of the Northland, with the National Weather Service office in Duluth recording 2 inches by 6 p.m. The snow was slowly tapering off during the evening hours, but roads remained slippery across the region.

Highs generally are expected in the teens this week, with mostly cloudy skies Wednesday and Thursday and partly cloudy skies expected as the weekend approaches.
