The National Weather Service reported that snowfall of 3 to 5 inches is expected across much of the Northland, with higher amounts possible from the Iron Range east to the North Shore.
DULUTH, Minn. — Wednesday morning, Dec. 27, was the coldest one yet of the deep freeze that has settled into the Northland, with Cotton reporting a low of 41 below zero, and International Falls and Hibbing reporting record lows. Duluth didn't set a record low for Dec. 27 — but the city was at 70 hours of subzero temperatures and counting as of Wednesday night.
Parts of the Northland may see blizzard conditions from this afternoon into early Tuesday, as winter roars back into the region. Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories are in effect for most of the region.
DULUTH — The French sailors' spirits must have been running high as they headed out onto Lake Superior on that November day 99 years ago. After a long journey from France in what would turn out to be the waning days of World War I, the 100-plus men made up the crews of three brand-new minesweepers built for the French Navy at a shipyard in Fort William, Ontario (now part of Thunder Bay).
Strong storms are possible again this afternoon and evening in the Northland — with large hail, damaging winds and heavy rain the main threats, the Weather Service reported.
By the time the precipitation ends, there may be a glaze of ice and perhaps an inch or two of snow, the Weather Service said.
A band of heavy snow has caused difficult driving in parts of the Northland this morning, including in the Duluth area, as winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings continue for much of the region.

Thanks to extensive training together, firefighters and Calumet employees were able to pool their resources quickly and seamlessly to extinguish the fire.
A winter storm watch is in effect for Lake and Cook counties from Sunday night through Tuesday afternoon, for the potential of a half-foot of snow or more. It appears that the best chance for heavy snow will be in the higher terrain away from Lake Superior.
