An early spring snow storm impacted much of the region Friday, March 23rd and Saturday, March 24th; as a strong low pressure system tracked east across Kansas and Missouri.  This system brought heavy rain and snow to much of eastern Iowa, northwest Illinois, and northeast Missouri.  Snow fell from northern Iowa through much of eastern Iowa into central and east central Illinois.  A very sharp cutoff of snowfall was seen with this system.  Snowfall totals between 2 and 8 inches were common, with the heaviest snow of 8 to 14 inches falling in a 20 mile wide line from Mason City, to Anamosa, to Clinton, IA.
