DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - Parts of northern Minnesota and Wisconsin are blanketed with a fresh covering of snow.

The National Weather Service says it's the latest May snowfall on record of more than an inch in Duluth. That city had 2.4 inches Sunday. The deepest spot was Poplar in Wisconsin where nearly 6 inches fell.

WDIO-TV reports the snow made roads across the Northland slushy and wet, causing several accidents. There were also reports of power outages.

The snow will be gone quickly with temperatures around 60 Monday.
