Arctic Blast Creates Ice Accumulation Along Lake Superior Shoreline

An arctic blast that swept through the Great Lakes region left Minnesota’s Lake Superior shoreline covered in ice on Friday, February 14.

Residents of Duluth, Minnesota, were facing chilly temperatures of -11 degrees Fahrenheit on Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Forecasters later said winds were pushing the “thin sheet of ice” on Lake Superior to the north, warning people not to walk on the frozen lake.
