Snowfall Event



January 20, 2006 Snow Totals
Table listing of totals below the map.

 

An area of low pressure over northern Oklahoma on the morning of the 20th quickly moved northeast into Missouri during the day and then over Lake Erie during the night. As the low pulled out of Oklahoma, snow developed well north of the low across southern Iowa and Missouri and then spread northeast across the eastern part of Iowa into Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Bands of heavier snow developed on the northern edge of the snowfall and one of these bands set up across northeast Iowa into southwest Wisconsin. Snowfall rates around an inch an hour were reported under this band and although the snow did not last very long, it piled up pretty fast and accumulations of 3 to 5 inches were common. The highest totals reported were 6 inches just southeast of Prairie Du Chien Wisconsin and 5 inches at Farmersburg and McGregor Iowa along with Blue River Wisconsin.
