Duluth Sets Record for Number of Subzero Days
DULUTH (AP) – The low temperature at the Duluth International Airport has been below zero yet again, setting the city’s record for the most days with subzero temperatures in a winter season.
The temperature was minus 9 at the airport Sunday at 8 a.m. That was the 60th day of below-zero temperatures this winter.
The previous record of 59 was achieved three times, most recently in 1958 to 59. Before that it hadn’t happened since World War One.
Duluth gets a dubious reward for setting a record: more snow. Forecasts call for a snow today. The region is expected to get about 4 to 7 inches of snow.
