Alert

Snow returns Wednesday, spreading in during the morning hours,
and gradually exiting east later Wednesday evening. Amounts from
5 to 8 inches are expected, highest from along the Mississippi
River westward into southeast Minnesota and parts of northeast
Iowa. 1 to 2 inch per hour snowfall rates are possible.
