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).
Even for winter enthusiasts, this has felt like a worse winter than most. Extreme cold, marked with plenty of snowstorms has made many wish for warmer days and hope for snowbanks to start to shrink. Those snowstorms have pushed us into the record books for this season, hitting a major milestone Thursday.
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.
Yesterday turned out to be a pretty nice day. I went outside and breathed in the warm 34 degree air. It was nice not to have ice crystals immediately fill my lungs. As I looked around my yard and my home, I noticed a problem on my garage roof. The snow was piled up about 2 1/2 feet on my garage roof. See the problem isn't always how much snow has fallen, but sometimes drifts can occur on your roof.
You didn't think we'd have rising temperatures without another blast of snow, did you? A President's Day storm is ready to hit the Northland, and the National Weather Service has changed the Winter Weather Advisory to a Winter Storm Warning.
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.
