Consecutive Days with an Excessive Snow Depth
March 7, 2010 marks the 73rd consecutive day with a reported snow depth of at least 17 inches at Duluth, MN. The streak began with the Christmas Day blizzard when a snow depth of 22 inches was recorded. The maximum snow depth during this stretch was measured at 28 inches on the 9th and 10th of February. This ties for the 8th longest such string, but falling far behind the record of 122 consecutive days which began on December 3rd, 1955 and ended on April 3rd. 1956. With a continuation of the mild temperatures, not many more days will be added to the current streak.
