DULUTH -- Warm, humid weekend weather gave way to rain and snow in Minnesota Monday.

Nearly a foot of snow fell to the north where power was disrupted and numerous school districts canceled classes. The National Weather Service says 11 inches of snow fell near Chisholm and Orr with about 8 inches in Bigfork and Cook.

The Duluth News Tribune reports state transportation officials advised not to travel on Highway 53 north of Cook because of heavy snow. Hibbing, Chisholm and Grand Rapids were among school districts canceling classes. Minnesota Power reported a number of power outages to the north.

A fast-moving storm Sunday produced several unconfirmed tornadoes in south and south-central Minnesota, but there were no reports of damage or injuries.
