Episode Narrative A large area of surface low pressure ejecting northeast into the Northern Plains brought widespread moderate to heavy snow to much of west and central North Dakota Monday, December 20th through early morning Tuesday, December 21st. The heaviest snow fell across the northern half of North Dakota, where nine to twelve inches occurred. Lesser amount fell across the southwest and south central.
In addition to the snow, gusty northwest winds up to 25 mph across the south, created areas of blowing and drifting snow. This resulted in travel hazards and eventually led to travel advisories issued by state and county officials. Patchy freezing drizzle around the James River Basin also contributed to some travel hazards during this episode.
Event Narrative The cooperative observer at Lansford reported 12.9 inches of storm total snowfall.
