Brown Snow Blankets Parts Of The Northland

February 26, 2012 Updated Feb 26, 2012 at 5:20 PM CDT

Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - Is the snow brown in your town? Reports have come in that brown dust is falling along with the snow from Duluth to Knife River to Alborn. Chief Meteorologist Adam Clark found the reason: "Dust showed up in Kansas on visible satellite about 1-2 days ago. The thought is that the dust got wrapped up into our current low and created our dirty snow. I've had this happen once before in Oregon, there was a huge dust storm in Eastern Washington, then NE flow brought it down to us and it snowed red snow. Once it melted everything was DIRTY!" said Clark.
