    This is what we have coming lol.
    THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN DULUTH HAS ISSUED A LAKE EFFECT
    SNOW WARNING...WHICH IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM CST FRIDAY. THE
    SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW ADVISORY IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT. A WIND CHILL
    ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST FRIDAY. A WIND CHILL
    WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM FRIDAY TO 12 PM CST SATURDAY.

    HEAVY LAKE-EFFECT SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW TONIGHT WILL ACCUMULATE 8
    INCHES TO A FOOT IN MANY LOCATIONS ALONG THE LAKE SUPERIOR SHORE
    OF WISCONSIN. WINDS WITH GUSTS TO 30 MPH WILL CAUSE CONSIDERABLE
    DRIFTING AND BLOWING OF THE SNOW.

    A COMBINATION OF WIND AND FALLING TEMPERATURES WILL RESULT IN
    BITTER WIND CHILLS OF 30 TO 40 BELOW TONIGHT AND FRIDAY MORNING.
    LOWER TEMPERATURES AND CONTINUED WIND WILL RESULT IN MUCH MORE
    SEVERE WIND CHILLS OF 40 TO 50 BELOW FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY
    MORNING.

    FROST BITE OF EXPOSED SKIN WOULD BE EXPECTED TO OCCUR IN 12 TO
    15 MINUTES TONIGHT AND 7 TO 10 MINUTES FRIDAY NIGHT.

    A LAKE EFFECT SNOW WARNING MEANS SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF LAKE-
    EFFECT SNOW ARE FORECAST THAT COULD MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS OR
    IMPOSSIBLE. IF YOU MUST DRIVE...KEEP AN EXTRA FLASHLIGHT...FOOD...
    AND WATER IN YOUR VEHICLE IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY...AND LET
    SOMEONE KNOW OF YOUR TRAVEL PLANS.

    A WIND CHILL ADVISORY AND A WIND CHILL WARNING BOTH MEAN THE
    COMBINATION OF VERY COLD AIR AND STRONG WINDS WILL CREATE
    DANGEROUSLY LOW WIND CHILL VALUES TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY
    MORNING. THIS COULD RESULT IN FROST BITE AND LEAD TO HYPOTHERMIA
    IF PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN. should be fun it's going to be -14 to night and -20 tomorrow night...

    HUMmmmm Frost!!! LOL
