Check out the final snowfall tallies across Minnesota from April winter storm

Madison, Minnesota leads the way with 20 inches!

It snowed in Minnesota this week. Maybe you heard about it?

The snow fell and it fell hard for a long time in many areas of the state, piling up double digit totals from Marshall up through parts of the Twin Cities and into areas of central and northern Minnesota.
