Big Midwest Snow

The clouds have finally cleared and the remains of the early week snowstorm in the midwest are clearly visible on the Thursday morning satellite image.

This image does not include boundary lines but the nearly solid area of snow cover is evident from Lake Michigan on the right edge to the Black Hills on the left. The outlines of the Platte, Missouri and Mississippi Rivers and their tributaries are neatly cut out in the snow.

10-15 inches of snow were common across parts of the Dakotas, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. A few areas received up to 18 inches of snow. The storm started on the West Coast. Mountain snow totals in California were up to 4 feet. The storm eventually reached the East Coast. Rain totals in Maryland were in the 1-2 inch range and snow fall totals in New England ran over one foot.
