Temperatures around the Duluth - Superior area this morning were between -15 and -30 Fahrenheit before wind chill was factored in. In America's icebox, places like Embarass and International Falls saw temperatures below -40 before factoring any wind chill. These temperatures have been colder than places in the Arctic Circle lately, but it turns out there is another shocking fact about this frigid cold.
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?
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.
The Fall leaves are starting to show their colors, a sure sign that the temperature is colder. It's hard to believe and very sad that many of our children in the Northland do not own a warm jacket or winter coat to keep them warm. Benna Ford and B105 want to do something about that with the Northland's 11th Annual Coats for Kids. Please find time to clean out your closets and donate the jackets and coats that you aren't using (remember, adult coats fit our teens).
