We all complained about our Northland roads. Oh sure, the snow was taken care of but the ice that was under that snow is thick, rough and impossible to remove with our usual means. The City of Duluth heard our voices are tackling the situation with a new brine solution.
Waterspouts are generally a warm-season phenomenon, appearing over large bodies of water like Lake Superior. Saturday afternoon (December 7), multiple cold air waterspouts were spotted near Knife River, north of Duluth on the Minnesota North Shore.
Temperatures are well below zero tonight, and expected to be somewhere near -15F by tomorrow morning. It's cold, and it seems a little early in winter for these bone chilling temps. Last time it was this cold in December was 1976. But do you remember February 2nd 1996? That's the coldest I remember it ever being in my life. That's the day Tower set the Minnesota record for -60F.
First everyone talked about the storm coming and how much snow we could potentially get. Then, it was here, we talked about school closings and the fact that no travel was suggested. Now that's it's over and the snow has been moved off the roads, we're talking about the build up of ice that makes our ride bumpy, rough and uncomfortable. The City of Duluth has been out trying to remedy the situation but there's a good explanation why the roads haven't been cleared completely.
The multi-day snow storm that spanned December 2, 3, and 4, 2013 packed a serious punch, dropping feet of snow across the Twin Ports region. With parts of Duluth seeing over 2 feet of snow, where does this storm sit in the record books?
Wind, waves, cold, and snow hit the Twin Ports as the first major winter storm of the year passed through. Much of the area saw several feet of snow fall (see snowfall totals) to kick off the long winter season.
The first major snow storm of the season packed a serious punch, with waves of snow through the first week of December leaving Twin Ports and Northland residents digging out. So, how much snow did we get?
Whether you're walking the dog, checking out the waves or even training for Grandma’s Marathon (which isn't easy with the snow and ice), use extreme caution around the Aerial Lift Bridge. It never occurs to me that there could be potential danger lurking above me, other than from the pigeons and seagulls.
The National Weather Service has predicted the next phase of the snowstorm will result in at least 15 additional inches of snow in the area accompanied by strong winds and falling temperatures. This is a dangerous storm and the City of Duluth advises no travel.
While many places in the region have already seen between 1 and 2 feet of snow (see latest snowfall totals here), another heavy round is expected to hit today, leaving a final storm total of between 2 and 3 feet through much of the area before the snow clears out and frigidly cold conditions slide into the area.
