Spring snow storm on track to hit Minnesota April 17-19


A spring storm may add to snow shovelers’ woes as another system tracks into Minnesota.

The National Weather Service in Duluth reported a spring storm, which could be dumping a foot of snow in Colorado and the Rockies, should be moving this way. By Wednesday night, the storm may arrive in the Brainerd lakes area.

Minnesota expects to see the same spring combination of snow, sleet and freezing rain from past storms.
