Here in the Twin Cities we broke the 80" marker for total snowfall, making it the 8th snowiest season on record.
We're in the home stretch toward spring, but winter hasn't released its hold on Minnesota just yet.
After a season of big and small snowstorms, this weekend's snowfall officially pushed the year into the records books.
As of Monday, March 13, the Twin Cities' 2022-23 snowfall total is 80.3 inches, making this the eighth snowiest winter in the record books.
The only other Top 10 snowfall season to happen in the 21st century was in 2010-11, where 86.6 inches fell, making that year the fourth snowiest on record. The remaining records were all recorded in the 1900s, from 1916 through 1992.
The most the Twin Cities received on record was 98.6" in the 1983/84 season.
I hope that we're done with snow for the season but it would not surprise me at all if we weren't. Both Iowa and Minnesota have had some nasty winter storms in April. The Twin Cities could move up one or maybe even two more spots in amount received even if we just get as much as they're predicting this Friday. It looks like we're going to be getting up into the 40s tomorrow as well as next week.
And in some good news, spring arrives Monday!
