A winter storm spread light to moderate snow across much of eastern Iowa, northwest Illinois, and northeast Missouri. The snow began Wednesday (Feb 12) afternoon and ended early Thursday (Feb 13) morning   Snowfall amounts ranged from around 1 inch along a line from Manchester IA to Cedar Rapids IA to Sigourney IA, to near 4 inches in west central Illinois. A snow total of 5 inches was measured at the Augusta IL (Hancock Co IL) NWS COOP station.

In addition to the snow, strong winds gusts up to 40 mph were seen Wednesday night and early Thursday as an arctic cold front pushed through the area.  This caused some blowing and drifting of snow, leading to hazardous travel conditions and a few accidents for the Thursday morning commute.
