Snowfall Totals For December 20-21, 2010

Snowfall Maps Snowfall Reports

A low pressure area moved east out of the Rockies Sunday night the 19th, pushing into the Plains Monday evening (the 20th).  Snow spread well ahead of the system, reaching from the eastern Dakotas into parts of northern Illinois by Monday morning, and western Wisconsin by the afternoon. The snow was moderate to heavy at times, reducing visibilities to 1/2 mile or less with hourly snowfall rates near 1 inch. The heaviest snows fell from late afternoon into early evening on Monday, December 20th.

The snow exited into eastern Wisconsin by mid evening on Monday, but behind the snow areas of freezing drizzle brought some additional thin glazing of ice.
