MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The calendar has flipped to May, but winter has made a return appearance to southeastern Minnesota where residents are digging out of an unseasonable dump of wet heavy snow.

Students in more than 30 school districts are enjoying a rare snow day in May, while utility crews went to work early Thursday to restore power to more than 20,000 Xcel Energy customers.

The storm largely missed the Twin Cities, where only some eastern and southeastern suburbs got clipped. But the National Weather Service says the Owatonna area got up to 15.5 inches of snow, while Red Wing and Albert Lea got 10 inches, and Hastings and Farmington got more than 8 inches.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says travel is still not advised across much of southeastern Minnesota.
