More than one foot of snow falls in Northland in latest winter storms

DULUTH, MN– To say it has been a wild couple of weeks in the Northland is an understatement.

Most of last week, we dealt with extremely cold temperatures, including Cotton coming within four degrees of tying Minnesota’s all time low temperature on February 1.

On Monday, the Northland saw freezing rain and snow that led to snow covered and very icy roads. Most towns saw snow totals generally from one to six inches.

On Wednesday, another winter storm developed out of Colorado and moved northeast, slamming the Northland with heavy snow and strong winds Wednesday and Thursday.

Around 6 p.m. Thursday, MnDOT was not advising travel along parts of I-35, and highways 2, 53, 61 and 210 around the Twin Ports, Proctor, Hermantown and Two Harbors areas because of the blowing snow and icy roads.

Here are some of the latest snowfall totals from around the area:

  • Ashland: 13.1″
  • Holyoke: 12.4″
  • Mahtowa: 12.1″
  • Cohasset: 12.0″
  • Herbster: 12.0″
  • Gile: 11.8″
  • Washburn: 10.1″
