More heavy snow comes to NW Wisconsin

Published On: Apr 23 2013 07:33:11 AM CDT

Up to 10 inches of new snow in northwestern Wisconsin and northeastern Minnesota is closing schools and making travel challenging. But, forecasters say more spring-like temperatures are on the way.

Another wintry blast is keeping snow plow drivers busy and snow blowers humming in Wisconsin and Minnesota.  Hayward, Wis., is dealing with another 10 inches of snow. Schools in Hayward, Ashland, Bayfield and Drummond are closed Tuesday.

In Minnesota, Duluth is also dealing with about 10 inches of new snow. The National Weather Service said temperatures near 60 should cause some fast melting this weekend. Forecasters said it's the latest this much snow has been on the ground at the Twin Ports since records have been kept.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
