Overview

A strong low pressure system brought light snow and long-lived strong winds to eastern North Dakota and northwest Minnesota beginning the evening of Monday, March 6, 2017 and continuing into the early morning hours of Wednesday, March 8, 2017. Although this system brought generally light snow accumulations to the area, the long period of strong winds allowed for blizzard conditions to persist across portions of the Devils Lake basin throughout much of Tuesday, March 9, 2017. Reduced visibilities were also experienced for brief periods across the northern Red River Valley and into northwest Minnesota on Tuesday as quick bouts of snow easily blew around in 50-60 mph wind gusts.
