Mid-March Cold Snap

Wind Chill Advisory Doesn't Stop Northlanders From Their Daily Routine

DULUTH, Minn. –

It’s been an unseasonably cold Mid-March day across the Northland and it’s likely the last cold snap of the season.

A Wind Chill Advisory was in effect earlier this morning until 9am, feel like temperatures dropped down to -30° below zero.

This frigid Friday didn’t stop some Northlanders from their daily routine though.

“I like the weather here in the Northland and I like to get my daily exercise once or twice a day.  I want to prove to people that you can do it, no matter the weather!” explained Rhonda Sievers. “Yes, it takes guts to come out here in the middle of winter, but we can do it! We’re Northland tough!”

This morning the views of ice smoke along the Lake Superior shores, while ice sheets formed in the water, made Spring feel like it is still far away. But the forecast shows Spring temperatures are just around the corner and soon enough, the traces of winter will melt away.
