Episode Narrative A powerful storm system developed across the central Plains late Monday evening, and moved northeast across the Midwest and slowed down.

Copious amounts of moisture moved northward across Minnesota and developed a band of heavy rainfall and scattered thunderstorms the morning of Tuesday March 22nd. Some of the rainfall began to mix with sleet by the afternoon across portions of central Minnesota. The mixture of sleet, snow and patches of freezing rain switched over to all snow by Tuesday evening, and became heavy at times during the night.

Periods of heavy snow occurred across central Minnesota between midnight and 6 am, then translated south after 6 am. Several areas from Alexandria, eastward to Little Falls and Mora received locally 6 to 11 inches of snow before it tapered off Wednesday morning.
Event Narrative A period of sleet and snow fell on the onset of the precipitation. Several reports of heavy snowfall were observed by cooperative and supplemental observers across the county between midnight and 6 am. By the time the snow taper off to flurries, locally 8 inches fell.
