DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- An unrelenting storm has spread about 2 feet of snow in northeastern Minnesota and continued for a third day Wednesday. The heavy snow has contributed to dozens of traffic accidents around Duluth, closed the University of Minnesota Duluth, and slowed the Twin Cities morning commute on Wednesday.
A National Weather Service observer reported 26 inches of snow north of Two Harbors late Tuesday night. Duluth was buried under at least 16 inches. Forecasters say much of the region will see another 8 to 12 inches Wednesday. By the time the winter storm warning ends Thursday morning, snowfall totals could approach 3 feet in some areas.
