WIDESPREAD MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW WILL AFFECT MOST OF THE NORTHLAND WEDNESDAY...GRADUALLY ENDING FROM SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT. ADDITIONAL WIDESPREAD SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS FROM 8 TO 14 INCHES ARE EXPECTED...WITH AN ADDITIONAL 15 TO 20 INCHES ALONG PORTIONS OF THE NORTH SHORE OF LAKE SUPERIOR...INCLUDING PARTS OF THE CITY OF DULUTH. THIS WILL BRING 3-DAY STORM TOTAL SNOWFALL TO BETWEEN 20 AND 30 INCHES IN MANY LOCATIONS...AND SOME LOCALIZED STORM TOTAL AMOUNTS NEAR 3 FEET ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE HIGHER TERRAIN JUST INLAND FROM THE NORTH SHORE FROM DULUTH...TO TWO HARBORS...SILVER BAY AND LUTSEN.
That is right folks, 20-30 inches with isolated amounts near 3 feet. Not bad for the first storm of the year.
We already have 10 inches or so at the ranch, with 2-4 more tonight before the 15-20 inch blast hits tomorrow. As a result of expecting between to have between 27 and 34 inches of snow on the ground from the first storm of the winter I am going to go find my cross country ski stuff and plan on making a time of it out there tonight. This storm is turning out awesome!
I bought my ski pass last night, school is already cancelled for tomorrow, I am feeling awesome! Lets get this party started!
