Spring storm buffets central U.S. with record snows

A spring storm system has hit much of the cental United States with extreme weather this weekend, bringing blizzard conditions in the upper Midwest and tornadoes, heavy rain, and hail further south. At least three people have been killed in connection to the storm, and hundreds of flights have been grounded in Minneapolis-Saint Paul thanks to about a foot of snow.

The storm is expected to continue through Monday as it moves east toward New England and the Mid-Atlantic states. Parts of Wisconsin and Michigan could get significantly more snow.
