Friday’s Snowstorm Breaks Record in Duluth, See Area Snowfall Totals

Yesterday afternoon we shared that Duluth was only half an inch away from breaking a snowfall record, and we managed to get enough snow to break the record later in the day. Just after 2 pm yesterday, the National Weather Service shared that Duluth had officially seen 9.5 inches of snow at the airport (where official measurements are taken). this was just a half inch short of the most snow from a single-day October snow event ever on record.

Now that the snow has stopped, we have a final measurement, showing that we picked up enough snow to surpass the old record and make yesterday’s storm the record holder for most snow from a single-day snow event. With a total of 10.6 inches of snow at the airport, we beat the 84 year old record by 6/10 of an inch.

If you’re thinking the Halloween of 1991 blizzard is notably missing, we promise, it isn’t. As we explained yesterday, The multi-day event in 1991 only dropped 4.2 inches on October 31 (which is still a top 10 day noted on the chart below).
