There’s Only Month That It Hasn’t Historically Snowed In Minnesota
It has definitely been a winter for the record books. We are still digging out from a weekend storm that brought well over a foot of snow to parts of the Northland. Some areas of Wisconsin saw nearly two feet of snow.
This latest winter storm helped make this one of the snowiest winters Duluth has ever seen and sadly, there is no sign of it slowing down just yet. We will more than likely keep climbing those ranks as another storm tracks toward us yet again for later in the week. (We don't need to talk about that right now. Ha!)
All of these things make it pretty obvious that this winter is one for the record books, which means absolutely anything can happen. I wouldn't be surprised at this point if winter lasted well into the summer. That's how long and intense this winter feels!
I thought this might be a bit of an exaggeration but did you know that this has technically happened before in Minnesota? I saw a tweet from FOX 9 Meteorologist Cody Matz that made my jaw drop.
He shared that when it comes to snow, there is only ONE month in Minnesota that has been snow-free, at least according to the record books. Obviously, this snow-free month is a summer month: July!
This is shocking because that means Minnesota has historically seen snow in June and in August. That is crazy to think about but it also makes sense. We are all used to cold, brutal winters so why would we be surprised that a winter lingered into summer? Florida is looking pretty good right about now!
With more snow on the way and at least one month of winter left to go, it's possible we may break a few more records but let's all hope that we don't see snow going into July. That is the one month we have in the Twin Ports to really soak up the sun!
