There's still lots of uncertainty with this system, in particular with how far north the rain/snow line will setup Saturday, but confidence is increasing in another high impact winter system this weekend, especially across central Minnesota into northwest Wisconsin.

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant snow...sleet...or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
