It may be Spring but the west central and northwestern Minnesota are getting slammed with another brutal winter storm system..
A mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain fell over the area around Barnesville, MN which is in Clay County and just 22 miles southwest of the Fargo & Moorhead metro area.
This area was the focus due to a major wreck along Interstate 94 that shut the interstate down for most of the afternoon and into the evening. Several tractor trailers hauling livestock crashed, along with several other vehicles just south of the Barnesville, MN area on Interstate 94.
The highest wind gusts that I recorded in the truck was 52.5 mph.
Total Run Time: 8:51
