January 20 Snowfall Totals

A quick moving weather system dumped a swath of accumulating snow over much of the region on Friday. With plenty of cold air in place across the area, abundant moisture with this system resulted in rapid snow development from west to east throughout a good portion of the region. Amounts of 3 to 6 inches were common south of Interstate 90, with generally less than 3 inches further to the north across Minnesota and Wisconsin. Below is a snowfall total map of the area for the duration of the event.
