Little to none of this precipitation will come as snow for central-southern Minnesota and nearly all of Wisconsin, though northwestern Minnesota will receive heavy snowfall.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for far western Minnesota Wednesday evening through Thursday evening. Also, a Winter Storm Watch will be in effect for northwestern Minnesota from late Wednesday night through Friday afternoon.
