Jan 6-7 2010 Winter Storm - Updated Snowfall Map

A winter storm will affect the area through early Friday morning, providing  
the area with moderate to heavy snowfall accumulations. 
Widespread snowfall totals of 5 to 8 inches are expected, with locally  
higher amounts 
of 9 to 10 inches possible along the Highway 30 corridor. 
Temperatures throughout the event will be in the single digits and teens,  
which will result in a rather light and fluffy snow with high liquid to snow  
ratios of 20:1 to 30:1. (1.0" snowfall = 0.05"-0.03" water) See the  
Liquid to Snow Chart. 
Thursday afternoon, winds will increase out of the northwest gusting 
over 30 mph at times. This will result in considerable blowing and  
drifting snow with reduced visibilities, as well as bitterly cold wind  
chills between 15 below zero and 30 below zero Thursday night and  
Friday morning.
