A winter storm moved out of the southern Plains Monday night January 8th, bringing snow across much of our region into Tuesday evening, January 9th. The strong storm dropped heavy, wet snow across parts of Iowa, northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Snow totals in excess of a foot were realized at some locations. In addition, strong northerly winds gusted from 30 to 40 mph at times leading to blowing and drifting.

The storm led to difficult to dangerous travel conditions during the heaviest snowfall, along with a lot of activity and school closures.
