Duluth cancels school as ‘messy’ spring snowstorm hits North Shore
Duluth students were treated to a day of snow in April as a wet spring storm rolled through the area.
Duluth Public Schools Wednesday classes canceled, citing “bad weather and poor road conditions”. This bad weather is, essentially, a pile of snow.
A spring storm brought cold rain, wind and snow to the area overnight in the morning. The Duluth area reported between 5 and 6.5 inches of snow in the past 24 hours.
Some of the highest snow totals are found higher up on the North Shore. Here are the leaders as of Wednesday noon:
- City of Murphy — 12″
- NE Finland — 8″
- Two ports — 7.8″
- Sawbill Lake — 7.2″
- Finland — 7″
- WSW Hovland—7″
- NSN Gary New Duluth — 6.5″
- Silver Bay W — 6.3″
- NE Rice Lake—6″
Duluth (and most of the north) is under a winter weather advisory, with precipitation and dusty winds expected to continue through the city until the advisory expires Friday at 7 a.m. . Cook and Lake counties face a spring and winter storm warning.
“Expect slippery road conditions,” warns the National Weather Service. “The hazardous conditions could impact morning or evening commutes.”
