RECORD! Northern MN and Wis. get latest May snowfall over 1-inch

Ugh. The winter that never seems to die is alive and well in northern Minnesota and Wis. as parts of the region are blanketed in snow.

Records are usually awesome... unless they involve snow in late May. 

Parts of northern Minnesota and Wisconsin are blanketed in white after a record-setting snowfall Sunday. The National Weather Service says it's the latest May snowfall on record of more than an inch in Duluth. That city had 2.4 inches fall  Sunday, while over in Wisconsin the community of Poplar got six inches.

WDIO-TV reports the snow made roads across the Northland slushy and wet, causing several accidents. There were also reports of power outages.

The good news, is that even the six-inch snowfall will melt quickly, with forecasted temperatures above 60 Monday..
