Episode Narrative Low pressure pushing across North Dakota brought strong winds and accumulating snow on February 17. While the strong winds impacted the entire local area, the accumulating snow was confined to the northwest and north central parts of the state. Although the storm total snow accumulations were only two to four inches, wind gusts up to 45 mph combined with the falling snow to result in a blizzard. Many roads were closed and numerous travel advisories were issued by county and state officials.
Event Narrative Blizzard conditions developed as strong northerly winds up to 45 mph combined with falling snow and the fresh snow cover on the ground.
