Overview Graphics & Photos Snowfall Peak Wind Gusts Wind Chills Temperatures Records


Overview

A complex and dangerous round of winter weather hit the Upper Midwest January 25th through the 28th, 2014.  Three different rounds of winter weather hit the region, bringing a variety of hazards over the several days.

Part 1 - Snow

The initial threat was snow that fell overnight Saturday, January 25th into the morning of Sunday, January 26th.  A general 1 to 4 inches of light, fluffy snow fell, except higher amounts were reported along the Interstate 94 corridor in Wisconsin.  The fresh, light snowfall would become a factor when the 2nd phase of the storm hit - the strong winds.

Part 2 - Wind / Blizzard

On Sunday, January 26th, strong northwest winds increased quite abruptly creating drastic changes in travel conditions.  Wind gusts of 30 to 60 mph were common.  While roads were in fairly good shape before the winds hit, white-out and blizzard conditions developed Sunday afternoon, especially across parts of Minnesota and Iowa, catching many motorists off guard.  Cars and trucks were stranded and numerous highways were closed.

Part 3 - Cold / Wind Chills

By the morning of Monday, January 27th, arctic air had swept in, dropping temperatures below zero. Combined with the strong northwest winds, wind chill values were -30 to -50 F causing wide spread school closings and activity cancellations.

Of note, a cold wave had hit earlier in the month - January 5-7, 2014
