Overview Snowfall Maps Snowfall Totals Pictures Peak Wind Storm Reports

Overview

A powerful winter storm hammered the region with heavy, wet snow and blizzard conditions on Thursday, February 20th into the morning of Friday the 21st.

Patchy drizzle and freezing drizzle spread into the area ahead of a strengthening low pressure system Thursday morning. A mass of snow, sleet and rain then moved into northeast Iowa by early afternoon, advancing into southeast Minnesota and western Wisconsin by mid-afternoon. The snow-sleet mix quickly turned over to snow, becoming heavy with 1-2 inch per hour accumulation rates with thunder in southeast Minnesota. At the Rochester Airport, 7 inches of snow fell between 2 and 6 pm Thursday. To the east over western Wisconsin, rain was predominant initially, eventually turning over to a 1-2 hour period of sleet. A wintry mix changed to all snow in the nighttime hours with 1-3 inches of accumulation. Further north of I-90 in Wisconsin, temperatures were cold enough that snow was the main precipitation type with 4 to 12 inches falling.

The winds became very strong and gusty during the evening hours Thursday, gusting from 35 to 55 mph. Blizzard conditions developed quickly across northeast IA and southeast MN where peak wind gusts were in the 50-55 mph range, with white-outs and dangerous travel. Roads started to become impassable later in the evening with many road, highway, and interstate closures. Blowing and drifting occurred in other areas, with much less impact. 

The snow tapered off overnight into Friday morning, with minimal accumulations. Winds stayed strong though, continuing to keep visibilities low and roads closed from blowing and drifting snow. 

Highlights:

  • 1-2" per hour snowfall rates common across northeast IA and southeast MN - afternoon/early evening
  • Thunder occurred
  • Wind gusts from 35 to 50 mph Thursday night through Friday morning (peak 50 to 55 mph late Thursday evening) 
  • Blizzard conditions across southeast MN & northeast IA: many road closures, including Interstates and state highways
  • Many schools and other business were closed before the storm moved in - and continued to be closed into Friday morning
  • Power outages affected approximately 5000 customers.
