At this current time, the National Weather Service has announced that there’s a Winter Storm Warning in effect from November 26th at 9 pm until November 27th at 12:00 pm.

...WINTER STORM WILL BRING HEAVY SNOW AND STRONG WINDS TONIGHT
INTO WEDNESDAY ACROSS ALL OF NORTHWEST WISCONSIN AND PARTS OF
NORTHEAST MINNESOTA...

.A winter storm will impact the Northland tonight into Wednesday
morning. Northwest Wisconsin and portions of northeastern
Minnesota from Brainerd to the Twin Ports and parts of the North
Shore will see the main effects of this storm. In northwest
Wisconsin 8 to 12 inches is expected with locally higher amounts
as high as 12 to 18 inches possible in parts of Bayfield,
Ashland, and Iron counties. In northeast Minnesota, there will be
sharp difference in snow amounts as you head west, with 6 to 12
inches in the Twin Ports and parts of the north shore to 4 to 6
inches for Brainerd and the Iron Range. In addition to the heavy
snow rates, strong winds gusting as high as 30 to 45 mph will lead
to areas of blowing snow.

Snow begins south to north this evening, with snow starting by
midnight for much of the region except for parts of the north
shore and Iron Range where it will begin after midnight. Conditions
will be worst in the early Wednesday morning hours, and travel
during the Wednesday morning commute may be dangerous to nearly
impossible in northwest Wisconsin and in the Twin Ports due to
heavy snow rates and blowing snow. Snow will end from west to east
Wednesday afternoon and evening with some lingering lake effect
snow along the south shore into Wednesday night.
