As this storm system tracks out of South Dakota tonight and into southern Minnesota on Saturday a strong pressure gradient will develop. Look for wind blown snow to create near blizzard conditions in eastern Minnesota and Wisconsin. Duluth has already tallied nearly forty inches of snow this season.
There is likely to be some enhancement of the snowfall in Duluth/Superior as well as Ashland.
