Record snowfall in Duluth and Rochester, Minnesota

Along with biting winds and blowing snow.


“A daily record of 8.8 inches of snow was reported at Rochester on Thursday,” says meteorologist Craig Edwards.

“Duluth tallied 1.23 inches of water in the 14 inches of snow that fell.   The 10.9 inches of snow that fell on Feb. 20 set a daily record at Duluth as well as the 1.06 inches of water content.

“Arctic air is expected to continue its icy grip on the region through the rest of February.

“We’ll see how this snow melt plays out and the spring flood potential…. I’ll let you know when I see that coming.”

  1. Record snowfall in Japan, too. Heavy snow uproots farm industry. Heavy snowfalls in the Kanto and Koshin regions caused damage costs totaling more than ¥50 billion in Tokyo and four other prefectures.

  3. Could be waiting a while for the Spring thaw. Who would be surprised if winter weather lingered after what happened last year?
    As for my hometown here in the Sth. Hemisphere Summer ended abruptly weeks early with heavy rain and cold night temps with daily maxes now consistently below average.

  4. -15F to -30f at night for the rest of the week no idea what the wind chill will be we would really like to see some of this snow melt (slowly) the frost is down about 7 ft which is not doing good things to city water mains. Just another week in our frozen paradise. UP of Michigan

  5. Current snow depth in Duluth, MN now stands at 29″ http://www.weatherstreet.com/city_snow_depth/55802-Duluth-MN-snow-depth.htm

    … while Dubuque, IA has 7″ of snow cover. Yet the beloved quasi-meteorological Weather Channel maps show that snow cover depths are much higher for Dubuque, IA than Duluth, MN:

    This is not possible! No wonder DirecTV dropped their CAGW-laced programming!
