Snowfall of February 8-10, 2010

An extended period of snowfall occurred over much of central and northern Illinois, from early Monday through Wednesday, February 8-10.  A deep upper-level low pressure area moved east across the state, while a storm system moved northeast across the Ohio Valley.  The two systems combined to produce excessive snowfall across primarily the northern half of Illinois, with the heaviest totals in the Chicago metropolitan area, where snowfall was enhanced by the effects of Lake Michigan.
