Episode Narrative A Colorado Low moved across Kansas and into northern Missouri, then shifted northeast into Wisconsin. To the north of this low, an inverted trough set up into the Red River Valley. Several distinct bouts of precipitation were focused into southeast North Dakota and the northwest quarter of Minnesota during this event. Precipitation initially broke out during the night of the 23rd as light freezing rain over portions of west central Minnesota, but it quickly switched over to snow. This first bout of snow brought about 6 inches to Grant, Otter Tail, and Wadena counties by noon on the 24th. Additional bands of snow fell across the area that afternoon, but the heaviest band of snow set up over Barnes, Griggs, and Steele counties (in North Dakota), where 6 to 8 inches of snow was reported by 7 pm (on the 24th). A third round of snow fell overnight (into the morning of the 25th), covering a wide swath of area from Havana (ND) to Lancaster (MN). Many NWS cooperative observers reported 6 to 9 inches of snow that morning (25th) from this third bout of snow. Finally, the last band of snow clipped portions of west central Minnesota on Sunday (25th), with an additional 2 to 5 inches of snow. Therefore, snow totals were greatest over west central Minnesota, where Wadena reported 15.5 inches, Dalton reported 12.3 inches, and New York Mills reported 11.0 inches. Some higher totals were also received over portions of northwest Minnesota, where Lancaster reported 12.0 inches and Karlstad reported 11.0 inches.
