A late April snowstorm has dumped snow across much of western and northern Minnesota -- with some reports of a foot or more.

KDLM Radio in Detroit Lakes reported more than a foot of snow at its weather station, but snow amounts varied around the area.

The National Weather Service has received reports of an estimated 18 inches of snow in Pelican Rapids, 15 inches in Hawley and 13½ inches in Wilkin.

Other snowfall reports include 12 inches in Donnelly, more than 10 inches in Hewitt and 9½ inches north of Park Rapids. It also snowed in the Twin Cities but not as much.

Forecasters say it's not that unusual to get late April snow in Minnesota.

The snow is ending, but chilly weather will remain. The weather service says the highs will only be in the low- to mid 40s -- about 20 degrees below normal.
