Today marks the 30th anniversary of the standard bearer against which all other winter storms in Minnesota are compared against. The 1991 Halloween Blizzard produced 28.4” of snow in Minneapolis and over 36” in Duluth. I’m sure @Brian Dhas some good memories of this one.

Very much so. Fresh out of the Army that summer, and partied a lot. Partied hard during that storm. Ran out of whiskey, and beer, and was stuck at home with no way to get more. That deer season was tough getting around the woods, too. :)

Amazing that Duluth’s warmest *year* (albeit only Jan-Oct) on record is 2.4F warmer than any other year…especially with nearly 150 years of records.
 

It would be more typical for monthly records…but it’s a phenomenal statistical anomaly for a 10-month period.

I wonder what the monthly departures were in Jan-Oct 1963; I’m guessing JFM were crazy warm, as that’s where you can build up the + departures.

Toledo had an average temperature 60.6 for the month, so it tied for 3rd warmest October, tying with October 1920. It was the 2nd wettest October, 7.43" of rain, beating October 2001 (6.26".) (I remember October 2001 in Toledo.) Toledo also had its 9th warmest September and 6th wettest September (6.18").  Toledo got 13.61" in September-October (61 days.) This is considerably more rain than Toledo averages over the summer. (92 days)
