The Weather History for March 9th

Blizzard Coyote, one of the worst since the 1997 winters. A strong low pressure system brought widespread blizzard conditions to much of the Red River Valley 11 March 2009 as a surge of arctic air spilled into the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest. The blizzard, which the Grand Forks Herald dubbed Blizzard Coyote, was likely the worst to hit the southern Valley in terms of visibility since the winter of 1996/1997. The Grand Forks WFO issued blizzard warnings for most of the Valley except for the far north.
