Episode Narrative A Colorado low moved up into southwest Minnesota on the morning of the 29th. Temperatures for the morning were quite mild for late February, with many locations across eastern North Dakota and the northwest quarter of Minnesota in the mid 20s to around 30 degrees. Gusty northeast winds in the early morning turned more northerly by late morning, blowing around the fresh snow. Visibilities were poor along Interstate 29 south of Fargo, so the interstate was shut down. Conditions improved rapidly by early afternoon, as there was no cold air surge behind the storm. Afternoon temperatures still ranged in the mid 20s to mid 30s, which allowed the snow to start melting.
