URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE...UPDATED National Weather Service Duluth MN 630 PM CDT Sun Apr 30 2017 ...LATE WINTER STORM WILL BRING SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATION TO PORTIONS OF THE NORTHLAND... .A late-season winter storm will affect the Northland starting late tonight and continuing through Monday evening. An area of low pressure over northeast Kansas this afternoon will advance northeastward to southern Ontario by Tuesday morning. Rain will mix with and eventually change to snow for portions of central Minnesota tonight and in northeast Minnesota late tonight or Monday morning. Snow rates of 1 inch per hour are likely from near Aitkin and Grand Rapids, to the Iron Range, and interior portions of the Arrowhead late tonight through Monday morning. The Monday morning commute will be slow for some Northlanders due to snow accumulation on roads and visibility less than one-half mile. As temperatures warm slightly during the day, snow accumulation will slow down as melting and compaction take on a more prominent role. Precipitation may change back to rain as the rates diminish during the late morning into the afternoon.
