Episode Narrative A winter storm moved from the southern Plains into the western Great Lakes during the weekend of December 22-23. In southeast Minnesota, this was the second high impact storm of the month, producing heavy snow and strong winds. Highest snow accumulations were near the Mississippi River and ranged between 6 and 10 inches. Specific reports from weather observers included 9.3 inches near Reno (Houston County), 9.0 inches at Winona (Winona County) and 8.3 inches at Spring Grove (Houston County). Strong northwest wind gusts of 40 to 45 mph were common, with a few locations reaching around 50 mph. This caused blowing snow, which produced whiteout conditions.

The strongest winds were closer to Interstate 35 with gusts of 52 mph at Dexter, MN (Mower County) and 51 mph at Kasson, MN (Dodge County). Rochester, MN recorded a gust of 49 mph.
