3 Day Snow Total December 7th to 10th

A large storm system brought a wintry mix to portions of the northern plains over the 3 days from Friday December 7th through Monday December 10th. The storm moved across the region in two phases, one on Friday and the second stronger part Saturday into Sunday, perhaps lingering a few areas into the wee hours Monday. Below is an image based on NWS Cooperative Weather Observations and reports from the CoCoRaHS network.
