Episode Narrative A powerful low pressure system tracked across the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes region during the evening hours of December 10th into the morning hours of December 12th. This brought heavy snow and blizzard conditions across southeast Minnesota. Volunteer cooperative observers measured snowfall amounts of 23 inches at Winona Lock and Dam 5A (Winona County), 21 inches three miles south of Winona (Winona County), 17 inches one mile west of Reads Landing (Wabasha County), 16 inches near the Rochester airport (Olmsted County) and 12 inches at Mantorville (Dodge County). In addition to the heavy snow, sustained wind speeds of 25 to 30 miles per hour with gusts up to 50 miles per hour caused whiteout conditions, widespread road closures and stranded motorists.
Event Narrative Winter conditions deteriorated quickly during the morning hours with several inches of snow and increasing winds. This storm worsened to Blizzard conditions later in the day.
