January 4-6, 2005 Snow Totals
Table listing of totals below the map.
Two weather systems moving out of the southwestern United States affected the area with heavy snowfall from Tuesday afternoon through early Thursday morning. The first system brought snow to mainly northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin on Tuesday afternoon spreading northward to about Interstate 90 by Wednesday morning and snowfall amounts were in the 2-4 inch range (with only trace amounts north of I-90). The second system, right on the heels of the first, continued the snowfall south of I-90 on Wednesday and spread further north by the afternoon. By late Wednesday afternoon, many areas over northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin had already accumulated 5-7 inches of snow. The entire area near and south of I-90 was snowing heavily and this continued overnight into Thursday morning before pulling east. By Thursday morning, a storm total snow band of 15-17 inches was located from west of Dubuque, Iowa to west of Waterloo, Iowa. Amounts decreased northward with the I-90 corridor receiving about 4-5 inches and 6-9 inches in central Wisconsin.
Winter Storm Watches were issued around dawn on Tuesday for Wednesday and Wednesday night. The Watches were upgraded to a Snow Advisory for Wednesday and a Winter Weather Advisory or Winter Storm Warning for Wednesday Night (at 330 am Wednesday).
