A strong Spring storm system moved from central South Dakota into the lower Ohio River Valley by Saturday evening. Precipitation began as all rain across eastern Iowa, northwest Illinois and far northeast Missouri before drier air moving into the region caused the rain to mix with and change over to all snow Saturday morning and into the afternoon along the Highway 20 corridor in Iowa and Illinois. Snowfall amounts in general ranged from 2 to 5 inches with isolated reports of 6 to 7 inches in Jo Daviess and Stephenson Counties.
