A complex weather system brought multiple bouts of accumulating snow to the region from early Tuesday morning (Jan 22) through mid-day Wednesday. The storm focused the highest accumulating snow across southern Wisconsin, eastern Iowa, and northern Illinois. A few hours of freezing drizzle occurred early in the storm on Tuesday morning, providing a light glaze of ice.

This system was challenging to forecast as it had various pieces, and their interaction ultimately determined the snow totals across the area.  A southward shift to the snow totals became apparent early Tuesday morning.
