Later, 12:28 pm: Reuters is reporting this as a rare spring snowstorm. Even before global warming, it was rare to see such storms. Makes one almost long for the good ol' days when we had "real" global warming.
AccuWeather is reporting: this is going to be a doozy.
The same storm that brought heavy snow to Denver and Cheyenne Wednesday was delivering a swath of heavy, wet snow from southeastern Nebraska to northwestern Wisconsin and the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan through Thursday.
The storm, like many in recent weeks, seems to be ignoring the date and, if all the right pieces were to fall into place, could bring 6 inches to a foot of snow on its northwestern flank over the central Plains into the Upper Midwest.
