A spring snow storm is headed for the Upper Midwest, and locations in South Dakota and Minnesota could see two feet of snow. Blizzard conditions are possible, too.

Watching social media and comments from frustrated farmers who can't be in the field yet, you'd think planting was behind. But, it's really right on schedule according to the weekly crop progress report.

As temps warm, more motorcycles are on the road. In a Michigan town a rider was struck by a wild turkey and died after hitting the guard rail.

Warmer weather is also corresponding with a spike in gun violence. Indianapolis had its deadliest weekend in 25 years.
