where an additional 1 to 3 inches are possible. Elsewhere a 
dusting up to 2 inches is expected through tonight.

Light snow will continue across the area on Saturday. Lake and 
terrain enhancement is expected along the North Shore. Areas from 
Two Harbors to Grand Marais could see an additional 2 to 4 inches 
of snow accumulation with lighter totals elsewhere in the

Saturday evening, there is a slight chance of freezing rain or 
freezing drizzle. With the low chances of freezing precipitation, 
no ice accumulation is expected at this time.
Accumulating snow may occur Wednesday afternoon through Thursday.
Amounts are in question due to timing, strength and track of an 
anticipated low pressure system. This information will be fine 
tuned as we get closer to the event.
Snow spotters are requested to report their snowfall measurements
to the National Weather Service.
