...SHARP TEMPERATURE DROP WEDNESDAY ALONG WITH BLOWING SNOW...

An Arctic front will surge southward across western, central,
southern Minnesota, as well as west central Wisconsin on
Wednesday. This front will be accompanied by light snow. Once the
front moves through your area, expect a rapid drop in temperatures
in an hour or two. These rapidly falling temperatures could lead
to a flash freeze on area roadways. This is a condition where a 
small amount of snow that melted prior to fronts arrival, or 
water, will quickly freeze and cause black ice to form. Please be
aware of this condition and drive accordingly. In addition, 
strong northwest winds will develop behind this front leading to 
significant blowing and drifting snow, especially in areas that 
received heavy snowfall on Sunday.
