Episode Narrative An unusual late April winter storm hit the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest Friday (25th) and Saturday (26th). A low pressure system pushed northeast across Iowa Friday into Wisconsin Saturday. The storm blanketed much of far southeastern North Dakota and North and West Central Minnesota with more than 8 inches of snow. An area near Wahpeton, ND and Fergus Falls, MN got more than 12 inches. Gusty northerly winds produced blizzard and near blizzard conditions across West Central Minnesota, resulting in the closure of parts of Interstate 94 Saturday morning between Alexandria and Moorhead, MN. Travel was not advised in many other areas as well.
