More Snow Coming: Minneapolis, Denver

Yet another April snowstorm is setting up for the first half of this week in the Rockies and northern Plains.

Cities that will be impacted by the late-season snow include Minneapolis and Duluth, Minn., Rapid City and Sioux Falls, S.D., Cheyenne, Wyo. and Denver, Colo.

A cold front associated with an area of low pressure over northern Ontario will push southward on Monday, allowing for cold Canadian air to make its way back into the Plains once again.

High temperatures behind this front will struggle to reach the mid-30s on Monday, making places like Rapid City, S.D., feel more like late January than late April.

Snow has already been falling in parts of Wyoming and South Dakota and will push southeastward heading into Monday night as the front continues to dig into the country's midsection.

Snow will continue into fall into Tuesday before this system moves off to the east and warmer weather returns by midweek.

The northern Plains have had their fair share of snow this spring. Many places, such as Duluth, Minn., have had their snowiest spring on record, with 42 inches.

On average, Minneapolis, Minn., receives just 2.8 inches of snow in the month of April. This April, the city has already received 14.1 inches of snow, which is the fourth snowiest April on record. After receiving another 3 to 6 inches late on Monday and Monday night, Minneapolis will close in on the all-time snowiest April, which occurred in 1983 when 21.8 inches fell.

Rapid City has almost had more snow in the month of April alone than what they typically receive in an entire winter; and there's more snow on the way!
