An early "spring" winter storm brought an extended period of snow to the region on Tuesday, April 3rd with a wide swath of 6 to 9 inches. The heaviest snow fell mostly along and north of Interstate 90 in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

South of that area, freezing drizzle resulted in light glazing before all the precipitation turned to snow later in the day.

While many area roads were snow covered and slick, some of the higher traffic highways and streets were mainly just wet - thanks to melting from the combination of slower snowfall rates, April temperatures, and traffic.
