CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) - Residents in parts of eastern Minnesota are dealing with 10 inches of new snow as the winter season officially comes to an end.

Seasoned Minnesotans know that just because the first day of spring arrives on the calendar Thursday, winter-like weather is still very much a possibility.

The National Weather Service recorded 10 inches at Ogilvie in Kanabec County, 8 inches at Isanti in Isanti County and Murdock in Swift County.

Commuters in the Twin Cities dealt with slushy snow with a little more than 2 inches at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
