While not a very strong storm, this storm had open access to moist Gulf air, which ended up dropping large snowfall totals through part of the Midwest. This storm started out as rain early on 2/1, which quickly switched to snow after 6:00 PM and remained snow through the duration of the event. In our forecast area, our southeastern counties saw the brunt of the storm, while totals quickly fell off as you travel north, owing to too much dry air early in the event. Where heavy snow fell, totals ranged between 8-14 inches, with blowing/drifting snow that led to deeper drifts and roads that kept getting covered over again.
