Duluth Sets Record For Number Of Subzero Days

Created: 02/17/2014 7:46 AM KAALtv.com

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - The low temperature at the Duluth International Airport is below zero yet again, setting the city's record for the most days with subzero temperatures in a winter season.
 
A Duluth News Tribune report says 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 1958-59. Before that it hadn't happened since World War I.
 
Duluth gets a dubious reward for setting a record: more snow. Forecasts call for a sunny day, followed by snow late Sunday through Monday evening. The region is expected to get about 4 to 7 inches of snow.
