BEMIDJI – A major winter storm dropped significant snow throughout the region Monday and Tuesday.

In Bemidji, the storm brought 6 inches of fresh white powder, according to the National Weather Service in Grand Forks, N.D.


The Beltrami County Emergency Management office received reports of larger amounts, from 7 inches near Red Lake, 9 inches in Waskish and 10 inches near Blackduck and Kelliher.

The totals closed or delayed schools throughout the region due to snow and ice-packed roads.

And while Beltrami County received its share of snow, the total could have been much higher.

Some locations in northeast North Dakota received more than a foot of snow, with the Sarles area reporting 18 inches.

The weather service’s forecast for the upcoming week in Bemidji projects a gradual warming trend, which should hasten the spring thaw.
