Rare Spring Storm Impacts Northern Minnesota and Bemidji?

4/13/2022 (Permalink)

Snow covers cars on the street. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Beltrami County.

Last month, our Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing team responded to many storm damage emergencies caused by a rare, messy spring storm and unusual snow burst. This complex storm was a combination of freezing rain, sleet, and thunderstorms ending with snowfall accumulating at rates of up to three inches per hour! The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources describes the rarity of this storm as follows:

  • A typical "heavy" snowfall observation in Minnesota, with visibility to a quarter-mile or less, is associated with rates of about an inch per hour
  • Most areas in Minnesota see these types of snowfall rates once or twice per year on average, and it's not uncommon for communities to go years in between them
  • Even in heavy snowstorms, sustained snowfall rates exceeding two inches per hour are uncommon, and such observation may be expected just once or twice per decade, on average
  • Snowfall rates of three inches per hour occur only in Minnesota's very heaviest snow bands, and a given community may have decades in between such observations
