The Weather Service also reports that 2010 so far is the sixth snowiest autumn (Sept. 1-Nov. 30) on record for Duluth, with 18.5 inches of snow at the airport.People in Duluth living near Lake Superior may puzzle at that, having seen little if any snow accumulation so far this season – but it’s the airport that counts in the record books.

The snowiest autumn on record for Duluth was 1991, the year of the Halloween Blizzard. More details on snowy Duluth autumns here.
