Gradual warm-up to replace wintry conditions
DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Up to 10 inches of new snow in northwestern Wisconsin and northeastern Minnesota is closing schools and making travel challenging. But, forecasters say more spring-like temperatures are on the way.
Another wintry blast is keeping snow plow drivers busy and snow blowers humming in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Hayward, Wis., is dealing with another 10 inches of snow. Schools in Hayward, Ashland, Bayfield and Drummond are closed Tuesday.
In Minnesota, Duluth is also dealing with about 10 inches of new snow. The National Weather Service says temperatures near 60 should cause some fast melting this weekend. Forecasters say it's the latest this much snow has been on the ground at the Twin Ports since records have been kept.
