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.
Here we are, days away from saying goodbye to 2013. It's been an interesting year, with lots of memorable stories we've all shared. Some of these stories are sad and some are happy, while others are just plain goofy.
Two feet of snow followed by a frigid cold snap, and winter hasn't even officially started yet (December 21). Considering the weather this month, it is no surprise Duluth makes the list of cities with the most brutal winter weather.
December around the Twin Ports is the first month of the winter season we're practically guaranteed to see measurable snow and temperatures below the freezing mark for days on end. We've seen plenty of both, but the long string of unseasonably cold temperatures so early in December has people wondering if we've made the record books.
Waterspouts are generally a warm-season phenomenon, appearing over large bodies of water like Lake Superior. Saturday afternoon (December 7), multiple cold air waterspouts were spotted near Knife River, north of Duluth on the Minnesota North Shore.
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?
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.
A series of strong storms swept through the Twin Ports region yesterday, including an afternoon storm that brought gusty winds and small hail to Duluth around lunchtime. Later in the day, a severe thunderstorm about 70 miles west of Duluth touched down near Remer, and tracked southeast toward Hill City.
