ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) Snowfall records fell in many Minnesota cities in April--including St. Cloud--and now it looks like May is picking up where last month left off.
A Winter Storm Warning is posted for the Twin Cities metro area from 3 pm Wednesday until 7 pm Thursday. It does not include St. Cloud.
