Snow Totals Could Reach 20 Inches In NE Minnesota

DULUTH, Minn. (AP/WCCO) — Heavy snowfall has canceled or delayed school in some northeastern Minnesota communities.

All public, private, parochial and charter schools are closed Tuesday in Duluth. The Lake Superior School District, which includes Two Harbors and Silver Bay, along with schools in Proctor, Hermantown and the Cook County school district are also closed.

The National Weather Service says more than a foot of snow has accumulated in Duluth and Two Harbors.

Forecasters are expecting another 1 to 3 inches of snow through Tuesday afternoon when another round of heavy snow is expected to move into the region. Snow accumulations may exceed 20 inches from Grand Rapids to Duluth.

The weather service has issued a winter storm warning for the region through late Wednesday.

Closer to the Twin Cities, WCCO director of meteorology Mike Augustyniak says that Tuesday should be mostly dry. However more snow is expected to start moving into the metro area overnight.

The snow should keep accumulating through Wednesday. Snow totals could reach around 6 inches in the northwest portion of the metro area, with a little bit less moving toward the southeast side.
