Kansas City has seen measurable snow in May only once in recorded history, so this would be a rare event. In addition, Rochester, Minn. will likely see its biggest May snowstorm in history by recording more than 2 inches.
The weight of heavy snow downed tree limbs, triggering power outages in parts of northeast Colorado Front Range. Power outages and downed power lines were also reported in southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin early on May 2. This was the first one-inch-plus May snowfall anywhere in the state of Iowa since 1967 and the first such May snow in Sioux Falls, S.D. since 1944. This was on the heels of a rare ice storm for mid-April in Sioux Falls.

That spring snow is HEAVY, so I'm sure that there will be some damage. On the bright side, Wisconsin farmers need that precepitation. I just hope that the meltoff does not cause to much flood damage.

There is definitely something going on with the Arctic this year, perhaps the begin of runaway warming?
Do you have any links for the Greenland warm air over it? That is very intriguing to me
