February 8-9, 2001 Snow and
(Ending 9AM 2/9)
Table listing of totals below the map.
The cold front that helped to produce the snow and ice on the 7th and 8th of February, would be a major player in the snow and ice event from late on the 8th into the 9th. The front moved from eastern Wisconsin and central Illinois into western Wisconsin and eastern Iowa. This allowed surface temperatures to warm to freezing or above over much of western Wisconsin and portions of northeast Iowa. However, temperatures just a few thousand feet above the surface were well above freezing and this allowed the precipitation to fall as rain during the afternoon and evening of the 8th. Over southeast Minnesota and much of northeast Iowa, this rain froze when it hit the ground as air temperatures were still below freezing. Significant icing occurred in this region, with ice accumulations around a half inch common along with locally higher amounts up to one inch. As the main storm system moved out of the lower plains toward the upper Midwest during the early morning hours of the 9th, the front moved slowly east allowing colder air to filter into the region and change the freezing rain over to snow. In southwest Wisconsin along the Illinois border, temperatures started in the middle 30s and the precipitation was all rain, but as the colder air moved in, the rain changed to freezing rain and eventually over to snow during the morning of the 9th. Ice accumulations across the remainder of northeast Iowa into western Wisconsin were mainly in the quarter to half in range. Snowfall amounts across the entire region ranged from an inch or less for southwest Wisconsin up to four inches in parts of southeast Minnesota.
