Episode Narrative The first in a two part winter storm produced locally 4 to 7 inches of snowfall across portions of west central Minnesota during the late morning of Thursday, December 30th, through the early morning of Friday, December 31st. The first part of this winter storm had a large area of warm air aloft and allowed for mainly light rain, mixed with snow and sleet, before the colder air moved across the area late in the morning. Strong north to northwest winds developed on the back side of this system creating blizzard conditions during the evening and early morning hours, before the system moved off to the northeast.
Event Narrative Estimated snowfall amounts of 4 to 6 inches combined with northwest winds of 20 to 45 mph to create low visibilities and wind chills in the teens to twenties below zero.
