On Thursday, Duluth broke its record for all-time snowfall at 137.1 inches.  They've been adding to that total Friday.

Our temperatures are expected to remain cool into early May, but hopefully, we're at least done with the snow for this season now.

If you snow lovers are looking for a repeat of a lot of snow next year, you might be out of luck.  A Super El Nino is predicted to begin later this year and last into next winter.  In a typical El Nino, the Midwest has warmer than normal temperatures and less than average snowfall.
