Following a relatively uneventful winter, the exit of March brought with it one of the largest snowfalls Dunn County experienced all year.

Schools were closed, local businesses closed or shortened their hours and people stayed indoors, for the most part.

Killdeer was recorded with near nine inches and four to five-foot snowdrifts, according to the National Weather Service in Bismarck.

A blizzard warning was issued over the weekend for most of North Dakota, calling for eight to 12 inches in Dunn County beginning Sunday evening.

Winds picked up to near 45 mph throughout Sunday night and Monday to create near whiteout conditions.

No travel advisories were issued instantaneously for most of the state.

As the snow subsided by Monday afternoon, another storm system moved into the area Wednesday, brining with it a warning of an additional five inches for Killdeer.

The weather is set to improve, however, as the NWS is calling for a quick increase in local temperatures beginning Saturday.
