“The same storm system which brought an outbreak of severe weather to the South Central states created enough cold air to produce a zone of heavy accumulating snow on its cold side,” reads the opening paragraph from a recent AccuWeather article.
Heavy snow fell along a zone from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to Duluth, Minnesota.
Snowfall records were in fact broken in Duluth on Wednesday — the 21.1 cm (8.3 inches) of accumulating powder set a new all-time record for most snow on a calendar day in the month of May. The previous record was 5.5 inches set on May 8, 1902 (solar minimum of cycle 13).
According to AccuWeather, additional snow is falling early Thursday morning adding to the total.
Snowfall accumulations in some communities are expected to reach a foot.
