After record snowfall in April, an unusual May snowstorm is forecast for soggy northeast Minnesota.
More than 50 inches of April snow and a rapid spring melt have caused several streams in the area to overflow their banks.
The National Weather Service has posted flood warnings for the St. Louis River near Scanlon and the Missisippi River near Aitkin and Brainerd, but Meteorologist Dean Melde said those areas aren't expected to receive much precipitation from this storm.
"There's going to be a dividing line somewhere from the far eastern part of Minnesota getting just a few inches to well over six inches and even more possible across northern Wisconsin," Melde said.
Melde said the greatest risk for significant flooding is in northwest Wisconsin. He said the heart of the storm will move through Hayward and Ashland, and could drop from six to 12 inches of snow. The Duluth area is forecast to get one to three inches.
