January 30-31, 2002 Snow Totals
(Ending 8:30 AM 2/1)
Table listing of totals below the map.

A double barreled low pressure system brought two rounds of snow to the region to wrap up the month of January. A strong upper level low pressure system moved across the Rocky mountains into Kansas January 29th. A stationary cold front was sitting from the Ohio River valley into the Texas panhandle. An upper air disturbance created by the strong upper level low move northeast across the Midwest January 30th. This caused low pressure at the surface to move northeast along the front and help spread snow into the area. This was the first round of snow, with 1 to 2 inch accumulations mainly south of Interstate 90. The second round of snow developed on the 31st as the upper level low moved northeast from Kansas, across Iowa into northern Illinois. A second low formed at the surface and also moved northeast along the stationary front. Short periods of heavy snow formed and dumped from five to seven inches of snow in isolated locations of southeast Minnesota and southwest Wisconsin. The rest of the region generally saw snowfall amounts in the two to five inch range. The map below is an estimate of the snowfall totals for both rounds of snow.


Snow totals for January 30th and 31st.
