Episode Narrative A storm system developed across the Central Plains Saturday morning, December 31st, and quickly intensified and moved east across the Midwest by Sunday morning, January 1st. It created a large area of rain during the afternoon, and early evening across southern and eastern Minnesota, before quickly turning over to a period of heavy wet snow New Years Eve. Although snowfall amounts averaged between 2 and 4 inches, the quick nature of the turn over from rain to snow, the abnormally warm early Winter season over the Upper Midwest, and due to the holiday, a winter storm warning was issued for portions of east-central and south central Minnesota. Due to the intense and quick nature of the heavy wet snow, numerous accidents occurred during the height of the storm.
