The Weather History for January 7th

One of the worst blizzards on record struck the Red River Valley. Very heavy snowfall was accompanied by winds of up to 50 mph, causing significant travel problems and resulting in several road closures. Around two feet of snow was recorded in Fargo, while some areas received as much as 26 inches of snowfall. This storm was a setup for flooding across the Red River Basin.
