A big winter storm that earlier in the week forecasters thought might squarely target the Northland appeared Friday to be sliding south and east.

The National Weather Service in Duluth said computer models Friday showed the storm dropping the heaviest snow along a line from southwestern Minnesota into north-central and northern Wisconsin, including Bayfield, Washburn, Ashland, Sawyer and Iron counties, where 6-10 inches or more is expected in some areas. A winter storm watch is in effect for those counties from Sunday evening through Monday evening.

Snowfall totals are expected to drop off fast to the north and west, with 1-4 inches expected in the Twin Ports and little or no snow north of the Iron Range.

Forecasters said the storm may end up tracking even farther south and east, which would mean little or no snow for the Twin Ports.

Snow may begin in some areas late Sunday, but most of the accumulation is expected to occur Monday.
