"The clouds aren't going to go away for a while," said Billy Williams, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Sioux Falls, S.D., Monday afternoon. "Don't expect to see the sun until later in the week, when we could see partly sunny skies possibly Friday." In the meantime, Williams said more freezing rain and light snow are possible throughout southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa tonight and into Wednesday.

Jeff Boltjes, who is in his fifth year and second term of service on the board, indicated the proposed operating levy essentially replaces one that's expired. "We're basically just renewing our old referendum," Boltjes said.
