December of 2013 will be remembered as very snowy and cold across the Northland.
The month began with a large winterstorm that brought heavy snow to most of the region. The highest snowfall totals of 2 to 3 feet were found along the north shore of Lake Superior from Duluth to Two Harbors. The 3-day storm brought an impressive 23.3 inches to the Duluth Airport.
The south shore of Lake Superior was not to be out done. A long-duration lake effect snow event dumped in excess of 30 inches on the northern Wisconsin community of Ashland from December 21st through 23rd, 2013.
