Episode Narrative As the area of surface low pressure over western Lake Superior started to move east, it began to pull colder air from southern Canada down across the northern plains on very strong northwest winds. Temperatures in the teens to around 20F in the early morning dropped to the single digits above zero by late in the day. Light snow also accompanied the push of colder air. As wind speeds increased during the early morning hours of the 25th, whiteout conditions quickly developed over eastern North Dakota. Wind speeds gusted up to 55 mph and helped produce some large snow drifts, hampering travel. Luckily, the warm temperatures and freezing precipitation which had occurred on the 22nd and 23rd helped to freeze up the snowpack. Therefore there was a limited amount of snow to blow around.
