Weather History

Twenty-six years ago a major winter storm brought record snows to much of the Midwest. The second of two major snowstorms to hit southern Minnesota came to an end on January 21, 1982. Minneapolis received 20 inches of snow in 24 hours to break the previous record of 17 inches in 24 hours established just a few days earlier. A record 38 inches of snow covered the ground following the two storms, with drifts ten feet high.
