On Monday, part 2 of this winter storm will bring heavy snow to much of the Northland, with heavy snowfall rapidly developing across the region Monday morning and heavy snowfall rates of 1-2" per hour likely in the afternoon and evening hours.

Winds become more northwesterly at 10-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph, which could cause some blowing and drifting in spots. This snow will be more of the normal consistency (not heavy and wet), and temperatures will be falling through the day Monday.

Only 2-5" for north-central MN, but as much as 4-8" for the Twin Ports and MN Arrowhead, with around 5-10"+ likely for northwest Wisconsin. Lake enhancement will lead to locally higher snowfall amounts as high as 10-16"+ on the south shore. Travel will be dangerous to near impossible at times late Monday afternoon and evening!
