February 2-3 Snowfall Totals

A potent and fast-moving upper-level impulse brought a heavy, brief shot at snow along an axis oriented from northwest to southeast.  This axis was aligned roughly from near Kirksville, MO to Carbondale, IL.  Most locations reported between two to four inches within this region within a three-hour period of time.  The highest totals were between 4.0 and 4.5 inches within the St. Louis metropolitan area from Wentzville, MO to Belleville, IL.  This included the NWS office in Weldon Spring and Lambert Airport which both reported exactly 4.0" of snow.  The highest total from this event was 5.0" at Alton Lock and Dam.  Below is a list of reports from around the area courtesy of trained storm spotters, storm chasers, COCORAHS observers, and NWS employees from around St. Charles County in addition to a map of the observed snowfall ending early this morning.
