December 13-14, 2005 Snow Totals
Table listing of totals below the map.

Two storm systems from the west combined into one to produce widespread snows to the region. Low pressure over central Minnesota and a surface trough that extended north to south over Minnesota and Iowa helped trigger snow starting the evening of December 13th, which then continued through the day on the 14th. This was a fairly prolonged event with snowfall lasting 18+ hours in many locations.

Due to the location and slow movement of the storm, snowfall was relatively uniform over the region. While snowfall exceeded 6 inches in parts of northeast Iowa, southeast Minnesota, into northern Wisconsin, most other areas picked up at least 3 inches. Snowfall measurements were also tricky due to drifting and settling or compacting of the new snow.
