Snowfall From January 14-15, 2007

A disturbance in the upper atmosphere moved out of the southern Plains Sunday night, January 14th, and tracked northeast into the Upper Mississippi River Valley by Monday morning (the 15th). Meanwhile, an area of low pressure at the surface developed to the east of this disturbance, and moved into northern Ohio by Monday morning. Moisture was wrapped around this low, extending well west of it into Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. The combination of the increase in moisture and the approaching disturbance led to areas of snow spreading into western Iowa Sunday afternoon, and then into southern Minnesota, northern Illinois, and most of Wisconsin that night. The snow persisted into Monday morning, shifting across eastern Wisconsin Monday afternoon as the whole system transitioned east.

Snow was very light and fluffy with the cold air in place, leading to appreciable accumulations despite rather low liquid amounts. See the detailed listing below for amounts across the local area.
