Episode Narrative The initial winter storm warning for southeast North Dakota was issued on the afternoon of February 27th, while the winter storm warning for the rest of northeast North Dakota was issued early in the morning on February 28th. Therefore this winter storm event covers the end of February into early March. A Colorado Low tracked from northwest Missouri to eastern Wisconsin, while an inverted trough extended back into the Red River Valley. This brought a prolonged period of snow to eastern North Dakota and portions of northwest and west central Minnesota. Due to the bad weather, many schools closed Wednesday (February 28th), Thursday (April 1st), and Friday (April 2nd). Other schools were open for a half day on Wednesday and then closed for Thursday and Friday. Many church and school activities were also postponed. There were reports of several roofs caving in from the weight of the snow. Cayuga reported 21 inches of snow, Buffalo 20 inches, 19 inches at Finley and Enderlin, 17 inches at Lisbon and Maddock, and 16 inches at Cooperstown and McVille. For the rest of the warning area, 10 to 15 inches were common. The snow continued into the evening of March 1st, at which point wind speeds also increased. Blizzard conditions were reported from New Rockford to Cooperstown to Page to Wahpeton/Breckenridge. More information about the blizzard event can be found later in this month's report.
