A strong low pressure system located over Illinois and Indiana
continued to bring mainly snow to much of the Upper Midwest during
the late evening and overnight hours. The heaviest snow during the
late evening and overnight hours was over parts of central and
eastern Wisconsin. Winds had diminished across much of the region,
but continued to produce areas of blowing and drifting snow.
Early morning temperatures were in the 20s across much of
Minnesota and Wisconsin, to the mid 30s in southeast Iowa.

Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories continue
across much of Minnesota, Wisconsin and northern Iowa today into
this evening. 4 to 8 inches of additional snow are expected over
central and northern Wisconsin today, with lesser amounts into
central Minnesota, northern Iowa and southern Wisconsin. Brisk
northeast to north winds will continue to create blowing and
drifting snow. It will be a cold April day, with highs mostly in
the upper 20s and lower 30s.

The storm system finally exits tonight, with the snow diminishing
from southwest to northeast. Additional snow amounts tonight will
generally be light. Look for lows to range from some teens in
western Iowa and Minnesota, to the upper 20s near lake Michigan.

Temperatures are going to remain well below normal on Monday,
with highs mainly in the 30s.
