A snowy day Thursday for many areas of Dakotaland as a storm rolled southeast through our area. It started out by playing tricks on us meteorologists by not following standard methods of forecasting. But the storm finally began to take shape and we were able to project its path at the very last second. Looked like many areas in this narrow band would see a solid 3-6 inches, but even we were surprised when some of the totals topped 10 inches. Below is a look at the preliminary storm totals and an image from the National Weather Service in Aberdeen that shows just how thin this band really was in some spots.
