Possible record snow and cold from the Dakotas to New York.

Unusually heavy late season snowfall is forecast in or near many major cities including Mason City, Sioux Falls, Bismarck, Minneapolis, Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago, Grand Rapids and Detroit.

And we’re already a month into spring!

Parts of Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois could see more than 6 inches (15 cm) of snow.

In some areas this could be one of the heaviest snowfalls on record so late in the season.

Portions of South Dakota and Minnesota have already seen heavy snowfall (1 to 2 inches per hour), resulting in slippery roads.

The snow will spread across upstate New York, northern Pennsylvania and possibly the higher parts of New England through midday Sunday.

“This could be one of the heaviest snowfall so late in the season for some locations,” says Weather.com. Milwaukee could see the most snow after April 27 since 1990 and Grand Rapids could see the biggest snowfall so late in the season since 1963.

“It could also be one of the latest measurable snowfalls on record in Chicago and could set a new record if it receives at least 3 inches.”

Below-average temperatures are also on the way from the northern Rockies to the northern Plains, Midwest and parts of the Northeast.

A few daily record lows are even possible, including Madison, Wisconsin, and Dubuque, Iowa, on Sunday.
