Episode Narrative A second stronger surface low pressure area moved across the region on New Year's Eve bringing widespread heavy snowfall along with blizzard conditions. Bitter cold northwest winds of 25 to 40 mph combined with additional snowfall of 4 to 8 inches brought visibilities to near zero across much of the region. This was the second blizzard in two days across the region. The blizzard conditions continued into early New Year's Day. The total snowfall amounts from the two storms ranged from 8 to 14 inches. Some of the snowfall amounts included 8 inches near White Rock, 10 inches in Ortonville, and 14 inches in Artichoke Lake.
