April 24th, 2021 Snowfall

A late season snowfall hit parts of northeast Minnesota Saturday morning, April 24th, 2021. This was an elevation type snow event, meaning areas close to Lake Superior (lower elevation) saw little to no snow accumulation as snow that fell melted on contact, while in higher elevation, snow accumulated to about an inch, with most of that snow accumulating on trees and grassy/elevated surfaces. Living in West Duluth (lower elevation) there was no snow accumulation Saturday morning. Apparently seeing snow in Duluth since October wasn’t enough for me, so I had to take a little drive Saturday morning to find some snow that accumulated, so I ventured south on Highway 23 to find the snow, and sure enough once I got past Fond du Lac the landscape looked beautiful as snow stuck to the trees and grassy surfaces. All of the pictures below were taken from just south of Holyoke, MN at Graham Lake, enjoy!
