December 3-4 Snowfall Totals

Snow fell over a large area of Minnesota, northeast Iowa, and northern Illinois during the day Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. The heaviest amounts of snow fell in a line extending from Minneapolis, MN to Dubuque, IA, to Champaign, IL. This was a result of an intense band of snow that produced heavy snowfall during the afternoon of the 3rd, and again early on the 4th. Snowfall rates underneath the band reached 1 inch per hour. Below is a snowfall total map of eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois.
