MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — Another wintry blast has buried northeastern Minnesota under more than a foot and a-half of new snow, disrupted travel and closed schools.
The National Weather Service says 22 inches of snow has fallen in the Lake County community of Two Harbors, with 20 inches at Lake Nichols in St. Louis County.
In the Twin Cities, the official snow total was 7.2 inches according to WCCO director of meteorology Mike Augustyniak. The amount of snow that fell on Thursday was 6.4 inches, which set a new record for April 18.
As of right now, 2013 has logged the fourth snowiest April on record, Augustyniak said.
