8:30 pm update: The blizzard warning has been cancelled. A winter storm warning has been issued in its place until 7 pm on Tuesday. A blizzard warning is still in effect for the North Shore while a winter storm warning is in effect for the rest of Cook County until 7 pm on Tuesday, March 26.

Another 4-6" is expected for most of the area, with the exception of the Grand Portage area, which may get more. Poor travel conditions and potential power outages are possible. 





In addition, ice accumulations are still possible, with forecasts showing .10 to .25 of an inch. 



At this point, the National Weather Service does not have another specific update planned for this storm, but Boreal Community Media will continue to monitor forecasts and share any relevant information.
