Snowfall Not Uncommon In November, Says NWS

Nov 25, 2014

Cold weather and significant snowfall in November may seem unusual, but the National Weather Service says it’s not that atypical.

Dan Miller with the National Weather Service in Duluth says significant snowfall in November happens about 25 to 30 percent of the time.

 “I think we need to put a little bit of a perspective on it.  Yeah it’s a little early bit early and yeah it’s a lot colder than it was in October.  But really in the scheme of things this isn’t really that far off of the rails in terms of being wildly abnormal.”

The highest snowfall reports are coming from the Lake Superior Snowbelt, where the small town of Gile has recorded almost a hundred inches in the past two weeks.
