The Climate Prediction Center outlooks favor above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation for eastern North Dakota and the northwest quarter of Minnesota for late May. The outlooks also favor continued warmth into June. Read More >

Overview

A strong upper level low moved through the eastern Great Plains and the Great Lakes region on the afternoon of Saturday, February 25 and brought widespread snowfall to the region. Snow began slowly moving northward around noon on Saturday and finally diminished across northwest Minnesota during the morning hours on Sunday. Luckily, light winds prevented any widespread visibility problems from blowing snow.

 

This continues an active second half of the month of February. Many locations across central Minnesota have received over a foot of new snowfall since February began while others have received nearly a foot of snow just within the past week!
