April storm dumps foot of snow in Minn., Wis. 17 Apr 14

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Just when it seemed like spring was here, an April snowstorm has dumped more than a foot of snow on parts of Minnesota.

The National Weather Service reports nearly 15 inches of snow in Milaca, 14 inches in St. Francis and over 10 inches in Pine City.

Weather service meteorologist Lisa Schmit says the snow seemed to split Hennepin County, with the northern part getting almost a foot of snow and the south only a trace.

The snow shouldn’t last long. Highs may hit 60 in southwestern Minnesota by Saturday.
