Snow totals could reach 20 inches in NE Minnesota

Posted:

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- Heavy snowfall has canceled or delayed school in some northeastern Minnesota communities as an early-season winter storm moved into North Shore region.

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.

Northwestern Wisconsin may see 8 to 12 inches. Lows should fall well below zero Thursday night. The weather service has issued a winter storm warning for the region through late Wednesday.

And as the winter storm moved across the state Monday, the Minnesota State Patrol reported one person died in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 94 near St. Cloud.
