5 things you need to know Tuesday

Wisconsin heads to the polls

The unpredictable presidential race of 2016 returns Tuesday with the Wisconsin primary. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is hoping for a big win in the state, where 86 delegates are at stake, even as front-runner Hillary Clinton maintains a sizable delegate lead. On the Republican side, polls show front-runner Donald Trump trailing Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s endorsement. Trump has been calling for rival John Kasich, whose only primary win was in his home state of Ohio, to leave the race.

More spring snow on the way 

Say it ain’t so: Winter is just refusing to let go. Wintry precipitation is expected for portions of the Upper Midwest and Upper Great Lakes on Tuesday, the weather service said. Over the past couple days, heavy snow pasted parts of the Great Lakes and Northeast, and whiteout conditions in New York state caused dozens of accidents. Looking past Tuesday’s snow, no real signs of consistent spring warmth are forecast for the north-central and northeastern U.S. in the first half of April, according to AccuWeather.
