January 31 - February 1 Snow Storm

January 31-February 1 2008 Snow Storm
A winter storm that developed in the southern plains and tracked northward from the Gulf coast into southern Indiana left a swath of snow of around 4 to 8 inches across north central Illinois and 7 to 12 inches across northeast Illinois and northwest Indiana. Light to moderate snow started up late Thursday morning that dropped about an inch to an inch and a half by Thursday afternoon. Moderate snow, that was heavy at times, started up later in the afternoon Thursday and lasted through the morning on Friday. Some lingering snow lasted through the early afternoon in northwest Indiana that dropped an extra inch or so of snow. Here is a map showing where the heaviest snow fell, along with reports from COOP observers, official NWS observations, CoCoRaHS reports, and public reports. The National Weather Service in Romeoville would like to thank all of our great observers across our area for their reports yesterday and today and everyday!
