   Minnesota - Winter Storm Watch

Counties: Blue Earth; Brown; Faribault; Freeborn; Le Sueur; Martin; Nicollet; Redwood; Renville; Sibley; Steele; Waseca; Watonwan; Yellow Medicine

...WINTER STORM AIMING FOR SOUTHERN MINNESOTA TO WESTERN AND
NORTHERN WISCONSIN LATE SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY EVENING...
...TIGHT SNOWFALL GRADIENT ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE BAND LIKELY...
.A strong storm system will bring an area of heavy snow across a
portion of southern through east central Minnesota into western
Wisconsin by early Monday morning. Snowfall totals of 6 to 12
inches are possible by the time the storm exits the region Monday
evening. At this point, the heaviest snow will fall south of a
line from Redwood Falls through the Twin Cities toward St Croix
Falls and Rice Lake. There may only be minor snow accumulations
northwest of that line, therefore any slight shift in track could
result in localized large snowfall forecast changes. Other areas
that may see heavy snow include Fairmont, Mankato, River Falls and
Eau Claire.
A wintry mix with a period of freezing rain is possible in far
southern Minnesota near the Iowa border, then toward Eau Claire,
leading to slick roads. In addition, northeast winds between
20 to 35 mph will cause blowing and drifting snow and whiteout
conditions at times, especially in open country. Winds will begin
diminishing Monday night.
Remember, this is still a Winter Storm watch, and the track of
the heaviest snow may change. Be prepared for difficult driving
conditions if you have travel plans across central or southern
Minnesota and western and northern Wisconsin.
...WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY EVENING
THROUGH MONDAY EVENING...
* WHAT...Heavy snow and mixed precipitation possible. Plan on
difficult travel conditions, including during the morning
commute on Monday. Total snow accumulations of 7 to 10 inches,
with localized amounts up to 12 inches, and ice accumulations of
around one tenth are possible.
* WHERE...Portions of central, south central, southwest and west
central Minnesota.
* WHEN...From Sunday evening through Monday evening.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Winds gusting as high as 35 mph will
cause patchy blowing and drifting snow, and whiteout
conditions at times.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant
snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue
to monitor the latest forecasts.

   Ohio - Hydrologic Outlook

Counties: Allen; Defiance; Fulton; Henry; Paulding; Putnam; Van Wert; Williams

...Elevated Risk of River Flooding Next Week...
The combination of snow melt, and upcoming rainfall early next
week, atop frozen ground, will lead to the potential for
sufficient runoff to cause minor to moderate flooding on rivers
across the region.
The rise on rivers will also force breakup of thick ice and may
lead to ice jams, especially near bridges and bends in rivers.
Lowland flooding may occur upstream of ice jams that form.
Furthermore, sudden release of ice jams may lead to rapid
downstream flash flooding, especially in vulnerable areas.
Residents along streams and rivers should remain alert to
potential flooding through late January. If you are in a flood
prone area, prepare now to place sandbag and prepare to move to
higher ground. Listen to NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards for the
latest flood watch and or warning information.
