Have you been soaking in this mild weather we've been having in the Northland lately? We've been pretty mild for this time of the year in Minnesota, where we usually see quite a bit of snow and bitterly cold temperatures as we really transition from fall to winter.

This year, things have definitely been calm. We haven't been hit with a major snow storm or an arctic blast. While these mild conditions won't last forever, it is still interesting to compare what we have seen in the Duluth area this month to past Novembers.

WDIO shared more insight into this on Facebook Tuesday night (November 21st), stating that we are on track to have one of the least snowiest Novembers in the history of Duluth!

According to their post, we've seen less than an inch of snow in Duluth so far this month. Wow! This is a far cry from the massive snowstorm we had over Thanksgiving weekend a few years back.

As we head into the Thanksgiving break, it looks like these mild conditions will continue, with no snow in the forecast at the time of writing. While it will be cold, it doesn't look like we are looking at any brutal winter temperatures.

At some point, we know something will give and we will be hit with that major snowstorm or cold blast. For now, you can enjoy these mild conditions until we are truly hit with winter. One weather analyst says we may be part of a 'big daddy snowstorm' at some point, too!

Looking into December, the Old Farmer's Almanac is predicting a white Christmas, with snow and plenty bouts of cold temperatures for the last month of the year. At one point, they say we can expect 'bitter cold' so brace yourself. Winter is eventually coming.

The 15 Least Snowy Winters On Record In Duluth History

Since the National Weather Service began keeping weather records in Duluth in the late 1800s, here are the 15 winters with the lowest snowfall totals on historical record.

It is worth noting that the official records from 1941-today have been recorded at the area now known as the Duluth International Airport (away from the lake, on top of the hill). Before then, various locations closer to Lake Superior had been used for official weather recording data. For anyone that knows anything about how Lake Superior and the hill play a role in temperature and snow, you can see how this makes older records inherently different.

While these records note the "least snowy winters", they actually include all seasonal snowfall from July 1 through June 30 of the following year.
