Snow already? Duluth gets light dusting overnight

DULUTH, Minn. — Duluth residents have already gotten their first dusting of snow of the season. It's the area's earliest measurable snowfall in 17 years.

Light rain briefly turned to light snow at the Duluth airport Friday night. The National Weather Service recorded 0.1 inches of snow for the day, while weather spotters in Alborn and near Canyon reported 0.3 inches overnight.

A Duluth News Tribune report says the snow didn't last long, Ground temperatures are still warm, and air temperatures were back above 40 by early Saturday morning.

The last time the area got snow this early in the year was in 1995. The average date by which Duluth gets its first measurable snow is Oct. 24.
