Snowstorm hits western, northern Minn.
Minneapolis (AP) — It could be Old Man Winter's last gasp in Minnesota.
A late April snowstorm has dumped snow across much of western and northern Minnesota - with some reports of a foot or more.
The National Weather Service has received reports of an estimated 18 inches of snow in Pelican Rapids, 15 inches in Hawley and 13½ inches in Wilkin.
Other snowfall reports include 12 inches in Donnelly, more than 10 inches in Hewitt and 9½ inches north of Park Rapids. It also snowed in the Twin Cities but not as much.
The State Patrol reports I-94 is closed from Moorhead to the Osakis area because of poor travel conditions. Two men were killed Friday in a head-on crash near Alexandria in which snow and slippery roads were a factor.
Forecasters say it's not that unusual to get late April snow in Minnesota.
The snow is ending, but chilly weather will remain. The weather service says the highs in the Twin Cities will only be in the mid 40s - about 20 degrees below normal.
