Snowiest April On Record

April 19, 2013 Updated Nov 9, 2013 at 1:06 AM CDT

With snow totals ranging from 22" in Two Harbors, MN and Cornucopia, WI to over 17" in Duluth there is no doubt we saw quite the spring storm. Duluth has officially broke the record for the snowiest April in history receiving 41.7" of snow. The previous record was 31.6" set back in 1950. We also broke a record for one of the snowiest winters. So far this year we have seen almost 120" of snow, this makes it the 5th snowiest winter in over 150 years for Duluth. The 4th snowiest winter is close to being broke as well, we saw 121.0" in 1968-1969 meaning another inch of snow would beat it.

We are expecting snow to continue for the south shore today where some areas could receive an additional 4-8". Expect to see blowing and drifting snow for the Ports into the evening hours. There is a chance of seeing another slushy couple of inches into next week with some clippers passing by.
