Snow Squall Warning Issued for downtown Fargo?

4/19/2022 (Permalink)

Snow and freezing ice blow across a roadway during a snow squall. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Cass County.

Newswriter Barry Amundson reported on a snow squall that moved into downtown Fargo from the northwest on March 10. A snow squall could be described as a fast-moving blizzard. “Snow Squall” is a new term first issued in 2018 by the National Weather Service (NWS).

  • It is a polygon warning, generally 30-60 minutes in duration, that is issued similar to severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings
  • A snow squall is an intense, short-lived burst of heavy snowfall that leads to a quick reduction in visibilities and is often accompanied by gusty winds
  • Sudden whiteout conditions and slick roadways can lead to high-speed accidents with large pileups that result in injuries and fatalities
  • This new warning aims to bring better situational awareness to drivers and mitigate impacts related to these squalls
  • If a snow squall warning is issued in your area, avoid or delay motor travel until the squall passes through your location.

Flash Freeze

Snow squalls are especially dangerous because they are accompanied by a flash freeze that causes a rapid change in road conditions, leading to multiple accidents.
