January 20 snow totals

An upper level disturbance brought accumulating snow to most of central and southeast Illinois on Thursday January 20.  The heaviest snow band set up from central Missouri east into southern Illinois where 6 to 10 inch totals were common.  This band affected Clay, Richland, and Lawrence counties where 5 to 7 inches fell.  Amounts steadily tapered off farther north, with less than one inch from Peoria north.
