The winter storm warning for our area remains in effect until 7 pm Friday night. With upwards of 7 inches having fallen in areas from the Twin Ports and south, snow-covered roads, blowing and drifting snow, and ongoing new snow are making for a messy Friday.
Luckily the threat of a quarter of an inch of ice didn't develop and ice remained somewhat limited on roadways in the Twin Ports, but windy and snowy conditions have developed overnight and will hang around through the day today, leading the National Weather Service to extend their winter weather advisory until 4 pm today (Tuesday, April 1).
February and March are notorious for big snowstorms in the Northland, and the first of the late winter season packed a punch that was followed up with gusty 40 mph wind to lead to drifting snow and extend messy travel.
Another winter storm is beginning to move into the Twin Ports region, but this storm could bring a larger amount of heavier snow than what we saw on Monday. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for all of Eastern Minnesota and all of Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan. The warning is in effect now, and remains in effect until noon Friday.
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?
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.
It's our first major snowfall of the season! At least it missed Thanksgiving by a few days. Now that the advisory has been upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning it's time to reconnect with our winter driving skills, slow it down and allow extra time for scraping, shoveling and warming the car. The Duluth Police Department has also given some suggestions on what roadway would be best to use during this storm and tips on clearing the snow before the cold weather hits. Yes, that's coming next!
