DISCUSSION: In the wake of the recently concluded winter storm which impacted many parts of the north-central United States, here is a list of some of the preliminary snowfall totals which have been received up to this point. Note how there was a fairly large range of snowfall totals spread across a good portion of the state of North Dakota. Moreover, it is worth noting that this wide range of snowfall totals did in fact extend far beyond this state as per the snowfall totals reported to other National Weather Service offices across this part of the nation. As discussed in many news reports both regionally and nationally, one of the hardest hit cities was Minot, North Dakota. As a consequence of the persistent intense winter storm (and even blizzard) conditions impacting this region, several airports also had to shutdown runways and even entire airport operations in some cases during the worst parts of this recent winter storm.
