Blizzard warning in Duluth, 30 inches of snow possible by weekend; more snow Thursday for Twin Cities


December 15, 2022

ome places along the North Shore were expecting nearly 2 feet of snow. A blizzard warning was in effect until 6 p.m. Thursday for the Duluth-Superior area and along the North Shore of Lake Superior, with multiple hazards expected including heavy snow, mixed precipitation and gusty easterly winds, the National Weather Service said.

By noon Wednesday, roads were covered and snow continued to fall. Snow totals by by late afternoon ranged from 10.5 inches in the Lester Park area of Duluth to 11.8 at the Weather Service office near the Duluth airport. The town of Finland had registered 15.5 inches by dinnertime.

But that was just the start, the Weather Service said. By the time the storm wraps up Saturday morning, more than 30 inches could pile up in parts of Duluth and the North Shore, said meteorologist Jonathan Wolfe. Duluth is forecast to come close to breaking the 1991 Halloween blizzard record for snowfall in a 48-hour period, with 31.8 inches outside the city center between Tuesday and Thursday. The record is 32.6.
