Episode Narrative Late in the evening of the 8th, a cold front was located along a line from the Turtle Mountains to just east of Bismarck (ND). By Saturday morning (9th), the front had moved into Minnesota, along a line from near Baudette to Detroit Lakes. Very little snow fell as the front moved through, as most locations reported an inch or less. However, north to northwest winds gusted from 45 to 55 mph behind the front, causing ground blizzard conditions in open country with wind chills from 25 below to 40 below zero. Snow plows were pulled in many areas, and some school events were cancelled. Interstate 94 was closed from Moorhead to Fergus Falls, U.S. Highway 2 was closed from East Grand Forks to Crookston, and U.S. Highway 75 was closed in Polk County.
