We've finally made it to spring but the snow hasn't released its hold on Minnesota just yet.

After a year of big and small snowstorms, the 2022-23 season has officially made its way into the record books.

After a huge snow storm overnight, the total snowfall in the Twin Cities reached 89.7 inches, enough for the third-snowiest season on record. 

This weekend's storm has led to power outages, cancelled flights and crashes. Amounts of 4" to 10" have been reported across the state as of Saturday morning.

The only other Top 10 snowfall season to happen in the 21st century was in 2010-11, where 86.6 inches fell, making that year the fourth snowiest on record. The remaining records were all recorded in the 1900s, from 1916 through 1992.

Meanwhile up north, the 2023-23 winter season in Duluth continues to climb the top snow totals list. As of early Saturday morning, total seasonal snowfall is 128.2 inches, tying this as the fifth snowiest year on record.

With another wet mess set to bring rain and snow to the region potentially next week, Minnesotans know we're not out of the woods just yet when it comes to snow this time of year. So exactly how much snow will we end up with? To be determined.
