Episode Narrative Round two of two powerful winter storms plagued the upper Midwest in less than 48 hours as another fast moving system brought substantial snowfall, low temperatures, blizzard conditions and dangerously cold wind chills values.
Event Narrative Snow began in Benton County after 5 am. After 12 pm, snow became heavier, with periods of heavy snow in the afternoon. The winter storm continued through the early evening but snowfall became lighter and surface visibilities improved.
