Snow, Ice, Freezing Rain Closes Schools In Northeast Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Winter-like weather isn’t quite over for some parts of Minnesota.

Ice and snow has closed schools in and around Duluth Wednesday, while a steady, cold rain falls in the Twin Cities.

Besides Duluth, Hermantown, Proctor, Cloquet, Ely and several other area school districts closed due to the winter-like weather. Freezing rain and sleet have hit other parts of northeastern Minnesota, stretching into northwestern Wisconsin.

The National Weather Service expects up to 5 inches of snow along a line from Walker east to Silver Bay on the Lake Superior shore and on the Iron Range.

Below normal temperatures are expected through the week.
