Episode Narrative A strong storm system moved very slowly across the Northern Plains, and into the Upper Midwest from Sunday morning February 7th, through Tuesday morning February 9th. Although the snowfall rates were not heavy, a long steady snow event created a large area of 6+ inches of snow that fell from west central Minnesota, southeast across southwest, south central and portions of east central Minnesota.
The heaviest snowfall occurred in two small areas, one was around Glenwood, Litchfield, Long Prairie and Kimball where locally 9 to 12 inches fell. Another area was in the west and southwest suburbs of the Twin Cities, then southward toward the Iowa border along I-35 where locally 8 to 12 fell.
As the main circulation of the upper low tracked from far northeast South Dakota, south-southwest into far northwest Iowa, bands of heavier snowfall started to set up. These bands were along a line from near Owatonna north to the southwestern suburbs of the Twin Cities, then northwest to central Minnesota from late Sunday night, and into Monday evening.
Initially, snowfall ratios were high and ranged from 20 to 30-1. However, as the storm system began to intensify and tap higher moisture content across the central Plains, snowfall ratios decreased to approximately 10-1.
Event Narrative Several reports from the public, COOP observers, and storm data had storm totals of seven to nine inches across McLeod County, with the heaviest in the east.
