No surprise here! Winter returned to the Duluth / Superior area on Tuesday (November 10th). Our nice warm streak ended with some moderate snowfall.

So how much snow did we see exactly? WDIO Meteorologist Brandon Weathers shared snow totals on his Facebook page Wednesday (November 11th). Check it out below:

I guess it is safe to say our warm streak was just a fluke! We were lucky enough to have record-breaking "heat" for the end of October into the first stretch of the month of November. While we weren't seeing temperatures in the 80s, we definitely had a nice little warm-up, with some areas in the Northland seeing 70s. It was pretty awesome!

It was especially great after the October that we saw in the Twin Ports. It was a rollercoaster of a month to say the least. By the end of the month, we saw our second snowiest October on record, with a total of twelve inches of snow. That's not all: we also had our fifth coldest October on record, with an average temperature of 38 degrees.

While that was a nice change of pace for the Northland, it is now time to brace for a long winter. The National Weather Service of Duluth says we can expect occasional outbreaks of arctic air and frequent snow. Most of this will be due to our La Niña winter ahead. There is a strong chance that the weather event will continue into April. Therefore, I hope you took advantage of our little hot streak and now have your shovel handy.
