A late season winter storm brought heavy snow across a large part of the region on Wednesday, April 18th with a wide swath of 6 to 12 inches. The heaviest snow fell across northeast Iowa, far southeast Minnesota, and southwest Wisconsin. 

Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour resulted in slick, snow covered roads for many areas. Thanks to melting and April temperatures, roads were cleared rather quickly after the heaviest snow moved out of the area.
