ST. Cloud, Minn. (AP) St. Cloud has already set a record for the snowiest April in recorded history, and more could be on the way.

The National Weather Service says snow is possible Saturday night, although accumulations are expected to be an inch or less.

A more significant storm system will move northeast into Iowa on Monday, bringing the potential for accumulating snow back into the area once again. It is too soon to pin down exactly where the rain/snow line will setup, but locations that receive all snow could easily see several inches.

St. Cloud has received 22 inches of snow this month, breaking the old record of 15.6 inches in 1928. The seasonal total is 76.1 inches, ranking it among the four snowiest winter's since record-keeping began. Thirty eight-point six inches of snow has fallen since March first.

St. Cloud's normal high Saturday is 59 degrees. The city has not recorded a 50 degree temperature this spring. That's also a record for the latest 50 degree high.
