MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Upper Midwest residents longing for spring are facing another spell of wintry weather.
Forecasters expect a storm to dump up to a foot of snow on parts of Minnesota and South Dakota this weekend.
One school in southeastern South Dakota moved up its prom by a day to try to beat the storm. The Argus Leader reports Brandon Valley High School rescheduled the dance from Saturday to Friday night.
According to the latest forecast from News 8, there is a Winter Storm Watch in place for most of the News 8 Viewing Area from tonight through Sunday evening. Snowfall potential is for 3-7 inches of wet, heavy snow in the Coulee Region. Ice accumulation is also possible. Meteorologist Michelle Poedel's latest forecast is posted here.
The National Weather Service has issued a gale watch for high winds expected on western Lake Superior.
Meteorologist Michelle Margraf at the Twin Cities weather service says rain Friday over southern Minnesota is expected to change to snow as temperatures drop.
Margraf says the central U.S. is stuck in a cold pattern due to high pressure sitting off the East Coast.
