Episode Narrative A strong area of low pressure moved slowly northeast across the central and northern plains bringing widespread snowfall along with intense winds. The combination of the falling snow and the existing snow cover resulted in blizzard conditions with visibilities to near zero at times. This blizzard event was part of the same upper level low pressure trough that brought the heavy snowfall to the area on February 28th. See February Storm Data. Additional snowfall occurred on March 1st and 2nd across the area as a large area of snowfall wrapped in from the east. Widespread blizzard conditions developed by noon on March 2nd and continued into the early morning hours of the 3rd. Snowfall amounts of 7 to 14 inches fell with 25 to 30 inches on the ground. Northwest winds of 25 to 45 mph brought visibilities to near zero at times along with large drifts. Schools and buisnesses were closed for a couple days. Travel was not advised and several roads were closed.
