Updated forecast

Updated forecast looks better if you hate snow....Drier air over WI has caused a shift of the heavy snow band/precip band well into MN.As well as the SCF low tracking even more West that forecasted yesterday..After looking at the model data over the last few hours,thinking is the heavy snow will be staying over in MN...My WI areas should see mixed precip and light snow...So the maps for the most part will remain the same,however one will need to cut the snowfall total down to less than an inch(maybe an inch at best) through out much of the FA..Farther North 2 to 6 inches may be possible,Mainly North of a Minong to Webster and to North of a Hayward line Northern Barron,Polk and Rusk Counties may see 1 to 3 inches of snow before it all ends...Central Parts of said Counties maybe 1 to 2 inches,While the Southern parts of these Counties may not see much in the way of snow as it looks like a longer period of rain..The rain will take the longest in those areas to change over to snow....
Still not real confidence at snowfall totals at all for my WI FA...To many things pointing against it attm...May also see a thunderstorm or two in my WI areas....Nevertheless the forecast for MN still right on track,and it is verifying
