The Twin Cities could get 2 to 5 inches of slushy snow Wednesday night, with 3 to 4 inches in the southern/eastern metro suburbs, the Star Tribune's Paul Douglas reports.
A winter storm warning is posted for much of southeast Minnesota and western Wisconsin, including the Twin Cities metro area, KARE 11 reports.
Three inches is the all-time record for May snowfall from a single storm in the metro, forecasters say.
It's been 22 years since there was accumulating snow in May, and 37 years since there was more than 1 inch, MPR reports.
Snowfall of 3 to 6 inches is possible in Duluth, the North Shore and the Interstate 35 corridor, where winter weather advisories are in effect, the Duluth News Tribune reported.
There are other weather-related problems in the Northland. In a separate report, the News Tribune reports: Record April snow, an unusually warm string of days, thunderstorms and now the possibility of snow in May are all contributing to Northland rivers spilling over their banks, some of them flooding roads. There's also been a huge sewage overflow into Lake Superior.
