By Andrew Krueger from the Duluth News Tribune - February 25, 2018 Snow will continue to wind down across the Northland this morning, after a storm system dropped more than a half-foot of snow on parts of the region overnight. Travel was treacherous across the region overnight as the snow combinedwith gusty winds to create low visibility and drifts on roads and highways. The Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of transportation report snow-covered highways across Northeastern Minnesota and Northwestern Wisconsin this morning, as plows are working to clear the roads. The National Weather Service reported 7.2 inches of snow at the Duluth airport as of 4 a.m., with light snow still falling. A spotter near Two Harbors reported 8.5 inches of snow at 3 a.m., with snow still falling. Snowfall rates reached 1 to 2 inches per hour at times overnight, with wind gusts in excess of 30 mph. Most of the snow is forecast to end from south to north this morning, with some lingering light snow showers and flurries possible through this evening, the Weather Service said. Quiet weather is forecast for Monday and Tuesday, with highs in the 30s. Here's a rundown of the warnings and advisories still in effect: Duluth, Superior, Cloquet, Hayward Winter storm warning in effect until 6 a.m. Sunday. Additional light snow accumulations expected.
