Episode Narrative A Colorado Low tracked from northeast Colorado on the morning of the 9th into west central Minnesota on the morning of the 10th. This system pushed unseasonably warm and moist air into the northern plains, with surface dew point temperatures on the 9th rising into the 30s. As rain fell on the colder ground, surfaces quickly became ice covered. Roughly 0.10 to 0.40 inches of ice was reported, making the morning commute on the 9th extremely treacherous. Hundreds of vehicle accidents were reported from the slick roads. Hospitals also reported many bumps and bruises from people slipping and falling. Many schools were closed on Monday (9th), and then began late on Tuesday. Most areas did not receive their regular mail delivery on Monday.
