February 14, 2001 Snow Totals
(Ending 3:30 PM and 7 PM 2/14)
Table listing of totals below the map.

Light to moderate snow fell across northeast Iowa into extreme southwestern Wisconsin on Valentines day. The snow develop in response to several upper air features that impacted the upper Midwest. During the winter months, the jet stream is often split into two streams, a northern and southern stream. On this day, the northern stream was along the U.S./Canadian border while the southern stream extended from the southwest U.S. to the lower Great Lakes region. Upper level disturbances in both jet streams moved across the upper Midwest during the day. With this scenario, the most favorable location for snowfall is in between the two jet streams where the energy can be combined to produce precipitation. There was a very sharp northern cutoff to the snow, as southeast Minnesota and most of western Wisconsin had little to no snow, while areas across northern Iowa into extreme southwest Wisconsin had one to four inch snows.
