'22-'23 Winter Storm #13

Posted: 19 Jan 2023 10:09 PM

Some snow continues to fall this Thursday morning, so the featured map of available snowfall reports will be updated later today and tomorrow as more reports are received. This snowfall was extremely wet and with snow to liquid ratios well below ten. The heaviest totals are to be found over western Iowa with a few reports of around ten inches. This snowfall created significant travel impacts on Wednesday night as its heavy nature and rapid falling meant snow plows were unable to keep up. Having temperatures near freezing today will help the removal process and hopefully allow applied materials to do work. The issue comes tonight as temperatures will cool and the very wet snow will likely cause refreeze / ice to cause troubles.

Good = 16
Bad = 2
