Weekend Snow Totals



Bookmark and Share

What a wild weather weekend it has been. This is the first weekend in a long time that was consumed by something weather related other then the drought.  In fact, this was desperately needed moisture.  Many areas received at least a little snow, but parts of South Dakota and Minnesota racked up more then a foot.  The heaviest of this snow was right through the highway 14 corridor like predicted with widespread amounts of 5 to 10 inches.  Even though the snow made life difficult for travelers, it was the wind that made it next to impossible to get around, especially north of I-90.  Doesn’t mean some didn’t try as ditches along major highways and interstates were littered with cars that slid off the roads.  Parts of I-90 and I-29 remain closed on your Sunday and are not likely to open till sometime Monday morning.  Below is a look back at some of the images from the first blizzard of the 2012-2013 winter season including safetravelusa cams, viewer pictures, snow totals, and peak wind gusts.  Enjoy!!







(What it looked like in the heart of the blizzard just a few miles south of Brooking on Interstate 29.  Traffic came to a stand still because of white out conditions.)




(2 pictures from a viewer near Lake Madison.  At this point, there was about 4-6 inches on the ground.)



(Another snap shot from a viewer.  This was late Sunday afternoon with about 10 inches on the ground.)

The following are a bunch of pictures captured during the day from safetravelusa.com  They are in chronological order.











(The following is an image produced by the National Weather Service that shows GPS coordinated snowfall totals.  These are not the official totals, but more of an estimate.  It does give you a really good view of who saw the most with its very simplistic color scheme.)
