DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - An early December storm has dumped more than 2 feet of snow in parts of northeastern Minnesota.
The Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/1c9VF0d ) reports as much as 26 inches of snow had fallen just north of Two Harbors by 8 p.m. Tuesday.
The National Weather Service says another foot or more could fall Wednesday before the storm moves east and is replaced by arctic cold. The highest snowfall amounts are forecast along the higher terrain of the North Shore, between Proctor and Grand Marais.
Duluth police have handled 50 crashes since the snow began Monday.
The heavy snow has canceled or delayed school in some northeastern Minnesota communities.
A gale warning is posted for Lake Superior. The weather service has issued a winter storm warning for the region through late Wednesday.
