A New Snowfall Record

Writes Ron Trenda on the Updraft blog of Minnesota Public Radio News:

Wednesday’s snow blitz dropped 8.9 inches of fresh snow at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Our official Twin Cities February snow total is now at 31.5 inches.

This is now the snowiest February in Twin Cities snowfall records, which date back to 1885!

February 2019 is also the 10th snowiest single month in Twin Cities weather records, and we could move up that list with additional snow this weekend.

Let’s rest our shoveling muscles for now.
