Our first blizzard of the year has come and gone. The Grand Forks Herald named this one Aaron in honor of a UND basketball player. The storm did not produce high snowfall totals. It did produce blizzard like conditions with visibilities near zero and wind speed gusting over 35 mph. Here at the Grand Forks Airport the snowboard was bare but we estimated that 1.2″ of new snow fell. The NWS in town measured 2.4″ The visibility at the airport was 3/4 mile most of the night and early morning hours.
