Overview

The first major winter storm of 2018 in North Dakota and Minnesota occurred on January 10 and 11. Gusty winds combined with falling snow to produce blizzard conditions in the Red River Valley. These conditions lead to the closure of I-29 from Fargo to the Canadian border in North Dakota and the closure of US-2 from East Grand Forks to Crookston. The heaviest snow fell from Devils Lake to Valley northeast through Grand Forks to Thief River Falls with the highest totals near 7 inches in Buxton and Grand Forks.
