The possible snow totals from the upcoming storm have been raised.
The area could see a foot of snow from what the National Weather Service (NWS) is calling a "powerful winter storm." Ten to 12 inches is predicted for the local area, with the typical lake-effect area near Ashland facing an onslaught of up to 22 inches – or more.
Strong winds along Lake Superior could lead to blizzard conditions and flooding for the Twin Ports area and the North Shore.
The snow is set to fall Friday night through Sunday afternoon, creating "dangerous to nearly impossible" conditions for travelers, especially Saturday night into Sunday, the NWS said.
"For those that have holiday plans, if at all possible, delay travel to avoid the peak of the storm!" the NWS said. "Snow should taper off Sunday morning and afternoon from west to east."
