April snow delays school again


Thanks to an overnight snow storm, the start of the school day in New Richmond, Somerset and St. Croix Central was delayed on Tuesday, April 23.

Schools in those districts, and others around the area, will begin two hours late this morning.

Numerous accidents were reported as vehicles tried to navigate slushy roads. Some trees fell due to the heavy, wet snow, causing issues for some powerlines.

Somewhere in the neighborhood of five to six inches of snow fell across the region. The never-ending winter may be coming to an end, however. Forcasters are predicting temperatures in the 60s and perhaps the 70s by Sunday.
