The quickly approaching 2014-2015 winter season will see new terms used by the Minnesota Department of Transportation to describe winter driving conditions. The new terms will offer a more descriptive concept of what to expect on winter road than the older, more subjective terms.
How about one more big snow event for good measure? Whether or not you like it, the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning effective from 7:00 am Wednesday through 10:00 am Thursday.
The 2013-2014 winter season has been creeping further up the list of the top 15 snowiest winter seasons on record. With a significant snowstorm wrapping up the first week of April, this winter jumps up a few rungs on the ladder of winter records.
The winter storm warning for our area remains in effect until 7 pm Friday night. With upwards of 7 inches having fallen in areas from the Twin Ports and south, snow-covered roads, blowing and drifting snow, and ongoing new snow are making for a messy Friday.
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).
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.
Another winter storm is beginning to move into the Twin Ports region, but this storm could bring a larger amount of heavier snow than what we saw on Monday. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for all of Eastern Minnesota and all of Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan. The warning is in effect now, and remains in effect until noon Friday.
Last weeks weather brought a doozy of a storm across the lower plain states and for many of these areas they are not prepared or equipped to deal with the snow and Ice. In comes a Good Samaritan from Kansas.
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.
