This is spring? Weekend snow, cold hit Midwestern states

When snow bringing 'heavy road slush, power outages' is expected to hit Michigan Madison, Milwaukee brace for April snow

A narrow band will bring significant risk of snowfall Saturday afternoon and evening, though the weather service noted that confidence on where this band will set up remains low.

Because of the snow, a winter storm warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for Le Sueur, Rice, Blue Earth, Waseca, Steele, Martin, Faribault, Freeborn, Brown, Nicollet and Watonwan counties. Two to four inches of snow is possible in some locations in the advisory area.

The Windy City turned into a very snowy city Saturday as up to 10 inches of the white stuff prepared to dump itself on Chicago.

Rain will begin to change to snow later in the morning in parts of South Dakota and southwest Minnesota. "In the heaviest snowfall, rates could approach 1 to 2 inches per hour", according to the agency.

Pressure no problem for Spurs in Game 7
The Nuggets saw their issues in San Antonio resurface however, as a cold start to the fourth quarter doomed them to play Game 7. Derrick White and Patty Mills scored 13 and 12 points, respectively, for San Antonio .

The storm will quickly move into parts of the Great Lakes overnight while a weakening band of snow is possible in parts of NY state early Sunday. Temperatures are expected to jump back into the 50s early next week.

'Even some of the bigger cities - including Chicago - may actually see a fairly substantial amount of accumulating snow by the time it ends later tonight, ' Orrison said. Last year, a mid-April snowstorm brought a record 15.8 inches of snow to Minnesota's Minneapolis-St.

A high of 47 was expected Sunday, with more rain possible Sunday night.
