Episode Narrative An upper level disturbance dropping south into the Northern Plains out of the Canadian Rockies, combined with a surface trough of low pressure, brought moderate snow accumulations and gusty winds to portions of west and central North Dakota from the morning of January 5th, through the early morning of January 7th.

Snow began Tuesday morning over western portions of the state as a surface trough developed across eastern Montana, and the left exit region of an upper level jet streak approached the local area. Areas of light to moderate snow developed further east through Tuesday night as these features pushed south and east, and continued into Wednesday as the parent upper level trough moved into the region.

Storm total snow accumulations ranged from five to eight inches from western North Dakota into portions of central North Dakota, with heavier amounts just under one foot reported over the James River Valley.

Furthermore, strong northwest winds of 20 to 35 mph developed behind the surface trough as strong Arctic high pressure surged south into the region Tuesday night into Wednesday. These strong winds accompanied the snow and produced near blizzard conditions over southwest and south central North Dakota at times, and resulted in numerous no travel advisories issued by county officials.
Event Narrative Two to four inches of snow fell across Renville County. Northwest winds of 15 to 30 mph created areas of blowing and drifting snow.
