Snowfall From November 10, 2006

An area of low pressure moved from the Southern Plains to across northern Indiana by the evening of Friday, November 10th. Precipitation developed to the north and west of this low center, moving into southeast Minnesota and northern Iowa overnight on Thursday, and then into western Wisconsin early on the morning of the 10th. Mild air was in place across the Upper Mississippi River Valley as the low moved in, resulting in a wide variety of precipitation types for the region. Showers and even a few thunderstorms affected parts of northeast Iowa, southern Wisconsin, and northern Illinois for much of day on 10th. Sleet was mixed in at times with these showers. To the north and northwest of there, enough colder air had been entrained into the storm system to create snow.

A band of snow set up from northern Iowa...extending northeast into north central Wisconsin. The movement of the surface low was such that this band sat nearly stationary over these areas for much of Friday morning. With accumulations of 1 to 2 inches per hour common, snow quickly accumulated. Locally, a 10 to 14 inch swath of snow was centered along an axis from near Austin, MN to around Withee, WI [see map below].

This band started to move east by the early afternoon, and continued to push east into eastern Wisconsin for Friday night. This quicker movement prevented the large snow accumulations that occured to the west.
