Consider us unamused, but winter weather awareness observances in Minnesota and Wisconsin are coinciding with the season's first big projected snow event.

A winter weather advisory was issued Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 5, for southeastern Minnesota and southwestern Wisconsin, including Goodhue County. The National Weather Service warns of up to 2-4 inches of snow Tuesday night into Wednesday, which could lead to slow, slippery commutes.

Washington, Dakota, Pierce and St. Croix counties were included in a Hazardous Weather Outlook.

The projected snowfall comes during a week dedicated to winter weather preparedness, including Winter Hazard Awareness Week in Minnesota and Winter Weather Week in Wisconsin.
