Southern Cook/North Shore, Cook County

Blizzard Warning issued February 23 at 6:30PM CST until February 24 at 6:00PM CST by NWS Duluth
Issued: Sunday, Feb 24 at 12:00 am
Expires: Sunday, Feb 24 at 06:00 pm

...STRONG WINTER STORM TO AFFECT NORTHLAND TONIGHT AND SUNDAY...
.An area of low pressure will strengthen over eastern Iowa this
evening and lift northeastward across northern Lake Michigan
early Sunday morning. This strong winter storm will bring not
only moderate to heavy accumulating snow to portions of the
Northland, but strong northwest winds as well. The northwest
winds, coupled with the moderate to heavy snowfall, will lead to
blowing and drifting snow, which will significantly reduce
visibilities down to less than one-quarter of a mile at times.
Total snow accumulations of 6 to 12 inches will be likely over
portions of northwest Wisconsin, with some higher amounts
possible over Price and Iron counties. While there will be lesser
amounts over the Minnesota Arrowhead region, expect the strongest
wind gusts along the North Shore, with gusts of between 35 to
45 mph possible, and perhaps some localized gusts up to 50 mph.
Snow accumulations over the Minnesota Arrowhead could range
between 3 to 5 inches. Snow will taper off from southwest to
northeast Sunday afternoon. The strongest winds are expected from
mid-morning Sunday into Sunday evening with blowing and drifting
snow likely. Conditions improve Sunday night as the storm system
lifts away from the Northland and winds diminish.
...BLIZZARD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO
6 PM CST SUNDAY...
* WHAT...Blizzard conditions expected. Total snow accumulations of
2 to 5 inches expected late tonight into Sunday morning. Winds
gusting as high as 50 mph on Sunday. Blizzard conditions are not
expected to develop until during the day Sunday.
* WHERE...Southern Cook and Southern Lake Counties.
* WHEN...From midnight tonight to 6 PM CST Sunday.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions. Patchy
blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. Gusty
winds could bring down tree branches.

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded, stay with your vehicle.
