This officially breaks the winter seasonal record of 135.4 inches set in 1995-96. 

More snow is likely on Thursday in Duluth, and heavier snow with 8-plus inches possible is forecast for northwestern Minnesota.

Duluth Mayor Emily Larson and the National Weather Service in Duluth were scheduled to hold a press conference on the new record at 4 p.m. on Thursday. But it was canceled "Due to weather conditions and power outages."
