Episode Narrative A potent surface low pressure system moved out of Colorado late Saturday (13th) and tracked northeast to the Minneapolis area by noon on Sunday (14th). This created a strong temperature gradient across the northern plains, with Devils Lake (ND) at 15 below zero and the Minneapolis (MN) area around 30 above by noon Sunday. As the system intensified over eastern Minnesota, north to northwest winds increased and caused some blowing and drifting snow along with very cold wind chills. Four to 10 inches of snow fell from Roseau to Baudette to Bemidji to Wadena.
