Halloween Weather

 

   Halloween Weather In the Northland

How can anyone forget the Halloween of 1991?

To refresh your memory- during the hieght or trick-or-treating, the storm started out as rain, then changed ro freezing rain, and before the trick-or-treating was over, it was snowing- HARD!

It continued to snow for two more days, with final total of 36.5 inches at the Duluth Airport and 35 inches in Superior. A large area of more that 20 inches of snow covered northwest Wisconsin from Bayfield to River Falls and nearly the eastern half of Minnesota. At times the snow fell at a rate of two inches per hour and was accompanied by thunder and lightning.
