Duluth students were treated to an April snow day as a wet spring storm rolled through the region.

Duluth Public Schools canceled classes Wednesday, citing "inclement weather and poor road conditions." That inclement weather is, essentially, a bunch of snow.

A spring storm brought cold rain, wind and snow to the region overnight into the morning. The Duluth area has reported anywhere from 5-6.5 inches of snow over the past 24 hours. 

Some of the highest snow totals are further up the North Shore. Here are the leaders as of noon Wednesday:

  • Murphy City — 12"
  • NE Finland — 8"
  • Two Harbors — 7.8"
  • Sawbill Lake — 7.2"
  • Finland  — 7"
  • WSW Hovland — 7"
  • NNW Gary New Duluth — 6.5"
  • W Silver Bay — 6.3"
  • NE Rice Lake — 6"

Duluth (and most of the northland) is under a winter weather advisory, with precipitation and dusty winds expected to continue in the city until the advisory expires 7 a.m. Friday. Cook and Lake Counties are facing a spring winter storm warning.

"Plan on slippery road conditions," the National Weather Service warns. "The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute."
